Rolling a lemon on a cutting board
  • What is the most appropriate word to describe this in Japanese?
    I came up with レモンを圧力する(かける)、まな板でレモンを圧力する(かける)
    Is there a better verb or better expression to use?
    I described this as 'pressing' rather than rolling.

    To put into context, it is what we do to lemon in order to release the juices throughout the inside of the fruit.
  • An appropriate verb would probably be 転がす (to roll).

    For instance:

    "In order to release the juices of the lemon within the fruit itself, one can use the method of rolling the fruit over the surface of a chopping board."

  • That's precisely what I was looking for! Thank you for the explanation!

Howdy, Stranger!
