Question for Mom


How much juice is in one lemon?  Alice F.

It depends on the size of the lemon and how thick the peel is.  The average thin-skinned lemon, which is about 2 ½ inches long, should yield about 2 ½ tablespoons juice.  A bigger lemon with a very thick peel might yield just 1 tablespoon juice.  Thin-skinned lemons are a better value.

Here are some other useful measuring tidbits:

4 oz. cheddar cheese = 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese 

1 large apple = 1 cup sliced apples

12 oz. (1 package) chocolate chips = 2 cups chocolate chips
