Reader Tip: Juice Key Limes with a Garlic Press

Here's a quick tip from reader Jennifer, who added at least one more good use to her garlic press. She says:

I was making key lime bars last night and came up with a great tip - use your garlic press to juice the tiny limes!! Just cut them in half and they fit perfectly in the little slot. The press also catches any unwanted seeds.

Thanks, Jennifer!

Have you ever found another good use for a unitasker?
