- Once your berries are thawed all the way through put your Siv directly over the container with a spout and strain the juice from the berries.
- Take a fork and start mushing the berries in the Siv to get to the remaining juice out of the berries.
- Once you are sure all the juice is in the container and not the Berries put the Siv with the remaining berries aside.
- You can use the smushed berries for other things (there really good with yogurt and cottage cheese :))

Real Lemons:
