Halocho #341 - Fresh fruit juice on Shabbat

It's forbidden to squeeze fruit on Shabbat, in order to use the juice.

Therefore one may not squeeze lemons into water to make lemonade.

One may not squeeze out grapes to make grape juice.

There are opinions that even sucking out the juice from the fruit is forbidden.

If one has no use for the juice, then there is no prohibition squeezing it out. Therefore one may squeeze out cucumbers - and pickles - if the juice will be thrown out.

One may squeeze out the juice from fruit into solids. For example, one could squeeze out lemons into a salad.
