Salt Lemons

Over the same large bowl into which you've squeezed the lemon juice, sprinkle the inside of each "juiced" lemon with 1/4 tsp. fine sea salt, working as much of the salt as possible into the lemon flesh as you go.

Note: The combination of lemon juice and salt is murder on even the slightest of scratches. If you have so much as a hangnail, don some gloves - even if that means just putting plastic baggies over your hands!
