TIP DE COCINA: Freeze green onions in water bottles - shake out the right amount and return to the freezer. You always have to buy so many green onions and recipes usually never call for more than 3 stalks - genius!
Tongs Here's another trick for your summer lemonade: Use a pair of sturdy tongs to get more juice out of citrus fruits. Cut the fruit in half, and place a piece between the prongs. Working over a pitcher, squeeze the open end of the tongs with both hands. When finished, pour the juice through a sieve.
