7 Lemon Hacks

Jul 19, 2017 | Food

Coming into winter lemons are in season and easy to get your hands on (cheap too!) Aside from being rich in Vitamin C (making them great for your immune system) and antioxidants (help fight free radicals), lemons  are a great addition to your diet. Whether it’s zest in your dessert, a drizzle on your salad or a squeeze in your water, lemon and its juice have many ways it can zing up your food.

But believe it or not, there’s actually a lot more you can do with lemon than simply use it for taste.

Here a 7 Lemon Hacks you can use in the kitchen to help make life just that little bit zestier:

  1. Prevent browning

A few squeezes of lemon juice can do wonders for avocados, apples, and bananas! Because lemon juice is acidic, it helps prevent produce turning brown.

  1. Stop rice from sticking

Adding a few drops of lemon to your cooking water helps prevent this. Added tip: the lemon juice also whitens your rice!

  1. Tenderise meat

The acidity breaks down the fibres in meat, leaving it perfectly fork-tender.

  1. Crisp your lettuce

To crisp limp leaves, soak them in a bowl of cold water and ½ cup of lemon juice, then refrigerate for an hour.

  1. Transform a meal

It brightens up creamier dishes and is a great sodium-free substitute for salt.

  1. Keep brown sugar soft

Add a slice of the skin to your box of brown sugar to keep it from clumping.

  1. Cook perfect hard-boiled eggs

Brush eggshells with lemon juice before adding them to the pot. The lemon juice helps keep the shells from cracking while they cook.
