        Am I missing something? I don't see where it asks for lemon juice (just lemon zest) in that recipe.

            Looks tasty!!! . . . I might have to try it myself . . .

            My bet for Lemons is at Costco

            Good luck,

          There's a juice place in the basement level of St. Lawrence Market. Check with them.

          If you end up doing it yourself, this may sound like an obvious thing, but I've been squeezing citrus for ages by hand and I recently just bought myself one of those little plastic things that you squeeze the lemon/lime half over. This little $2 gadget makes a HUGE difference - easier and you don't waste anything.

            Does your food processor have a juicer attachment??
            If so, that's what I'd do. In the end, it'd be faster and cheaper than going out and buying it somewhere else I'd think.

              No, I have an old Cuisinart that has the steel blade and the grater attachment.
              But the juicer thing I got was $2. Cheap and it works very well and is a cinch to clean.
