Preventing Brown Potatoes or Cauliflower
Potatoes and cauliflower tend to turn brown when boiling. Make sure the white vegetables stay white by squeezing a teaspoon of fresh lemon juice into the cooking water.
Keeping Green Guacamole
Sprinkle a liberal amount of fresh lemon juice over your guacamole and it will stay fresh and green. The flavor of the lemon juice is a natural complement to the avocados in the guacamole.
Soggy Lettuce Gets Crisp
Add the juice of half a lemon to a bowl of cold water. Then put your soggy lettuce in it and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Prevent Sticking Rice
Add a spoonful of lemon juice to boiling water when cooking rice. When the rice is done, let it cool for a few minutes, then fluff with a fork before serving.
