The Technique

Citrus Reamer

A citrus reamer is such a valuable tool in the kitchen as it may be used to extract a small or large amount of juice from fruits ranging from lemons & limes to tangerines, oranges & so much more. Although there are many sizes from which to choose, it’s alright to invest in just one that is able to complete a multitude of tasks. Some have the reamer portion set over a glass container designed to collect the juice & there are even large appliances available if freshly squeezed orange juice is a staple in your home, however a hand-held citrus reamer has long been my personal choice. It’s a tool I use almost everyday whether it’s to prepare Lemon-Dill Pickled Shrimp, Farro-Pine Nut Tabbouleh Salad, House Barbecue, Homemade Salsa or a pan of classic Lemon Bars. Learn how to use this smart tool for a variety of recipes.

How To Use A Citrus Reamer 

When entertaining is in order, a citrus reamer may be used for brunch favorites ranging from Blueberry-Buttermilk Kolaches, Blueberry-Lemon Tea Bread & Lemon Curd that is ideal to serve with a small batch of Buttermilk Scones or for afternoon gatherings that beckon lovely desserts such as a simple Buttermilk Pound Cake, Lemon-Poppy Seed Tea Cookies, Citrus-Poppy Seed Bars or Lemon-Poppy Seed Butter Cookies.

When fresh citrus juice is needed for recipe applications, it’s important to have the right device that will release every bit. A glass juicer where the reamer is set over a small bowl to collect the juice can be used or my preferred choice is a lemon press or citrus reamer. These valuable tools are generally coated with a non-reactive finish to prevent the acid from producing off flavors. Citrus halves can be placed in the custom fit compartment then the handles pressed together to extract the juice over a small bowl. It’s efficient enough to press every bit of juice quickly. Once the task is complete, the pulp & seeds will be left behind. Simply remove the used lemon halves & discard them. Before adding the juice to recipe applications, pour it through a small fine wire mesh sieve to collect any seeds or unwanted bits of pulp that may be in the bowl.
