How much juice is in one lemon?

"I never know how many lemons to buy when a recipe calls for lemon juice-- how much juice is in one lemon?"

While all lemons are not created equally—just like people, they come in may sizes—a good rule of thumb is that one average sized lemon will yield about 3 tablespoons of juice.

For a variety of ways to use lemons in recipes, see 7 Ways with Lemons.
