How do I squeeze fruit without it squirting everywhere?

Strange question of the day: When at a bar, and one orders a drink that comes with a wedge of fruit, such as a lime with a gin and tonic or a Corona, how does one deal with it? I cannot find a "smooth" way to squeeze the fruit without it squirting everywhere. Should I just leave it alone , or is their some drinking decorum I am lacking? Hive mind, activate!

Cookbook suggestions for cooking with in season fruits and veggies

What is a good cookbook for fresh cooking? I'm looking for a cookbook that takes in-season fruits and veggies and prepares them in a way where their natural flavors come through. I don't want anything heavy like fried foods or so drenched in sugar it will make my teeth hurt. Any ideas? I was looking at How to Pick a Peach by Russ Parsons but wanted to see if there is anything else better out there before I purchased it. Thanks :)

Drying fruit

Well, it's that time of year again: my Apricot tree is starting to fruit, and I'd like to try drying some of the fruit to enjoy all year around. I tried it last year, but the results weren't good: the fruit got mouldy and icky. Any pointers or links to good guides on drying or preserving fruit?

Is Bigger Better?

In Korea, the thinking seems to be 'the bigger the piece of fruit or vegetable, the better'. In western countries where I've lived, the opposite tended to be the case -- people seem to value the little tender baby ones the most. Is this merely fashion, or is there any nutritional basis to the preference, either way? [more inside]

How to open a Durian

How do I open a durian?
I've done this before, but it was a long time ago and I've forgotten. It's in the freezer so that it doesn't stink up the place (plus I remember that's the best way to serve it). I took huge hacks at it with a cleaver, but that was ineffective and will dull the blade. Does it really take a machete? Is a hatchet the way to go?

Why is my fruit rotting while it's unripe?

Why is my fruit rotting while it's unripe?
This just started happening this year when I moved to Arizona. Softer fruits (peaches, mangoes, tomatoes and the like) are turning moldy/rotten in a matter of 2-3 days. If I eat the side that isn't rotten, it's still hard and unripe. Do I have some strain of super bacteria infesting my domicile?

What's a good picnic recipe using APPLES?

Today's theme ingredient is...APPLES! What apple-based dessert recipe would you recommend for a picnic? 1) I don't care much for the very tart varieties of apple (e.g., Granny Smith), so I prefer a recipe that uses, or at least works with, the less tart varieties. 2) There will be several hours between baking and serving, so it should be servable at room temperature. 3) I'm reasonably skilled in the kitchen; you need not shy away from more difficult recipes.

How can I overcome my visual distaste and eat more fruits and vegetables?

Fussy-Filter
I am a very visual eater and extraordinarily stubborn. After avoiding pretty much all fruit and veg my entire life I am trying to take the plunge and expand my dietary horizons (without expanding my waistband). How can I get over the mental block of eating green and orange stuff? Can anyone recommend an easy way to get on the fruit and veg wagon or recipes that conceal the deadly veg from mine eyes?
