A nutritionist has discovered an ingenious way to juice a lemon in seconds without cutting it open.
Jacqui Baihn pierced the tip of a lemon with a stainless steel skewer and pushed it through to the other side to create a narrow hole stretching from end to end.
The channel allowed the clinical nutritionist from the Gold Coast, Queensland, to quickly squeeze the juice into a cup without any mess.
Ms Baihn, who specialises in gut and hormone health, filmed the trick and posted the footage on TikTok where it has been viewed by 374,000 people, many incredulous that they had never heard of it before.

Stainless steel skewers are available from Bunnings for $10.98 per pack of six or $1.83 each, and should be washed and reused just like cutlery.
Thanks again, TikTok, for teaching me more than my parents ever did,’ New Zealand Playboy model Sarah Harris replied to .
‘Isolation has made my life sad but this has genuinely made my day.
Life changing!’ another viewer said.
One woman joked that TikTok has swiftly become a modern ‘university’ where people are learning practical tricks and time-saving recipes more than ever before.
Others were infuriated by the hours they have wasted cutting and squeezing lemons and scrubbing chopping boards to remove any traces of sharp citrus juice.
