LEMON JUICE DAY – August 29th – 2012

 

August 29th is ‘Lemon Juice Day’.  How many ways can you think of to use Lemon Juice?  Can you live without Lemon Juice?  Some people do, but I couldn’t.  There are so many ways to use Lemon Juice and it is such a necessity to keep so many foods from oxidizing and turning that ugly dark color that makes food unappetizing to eat.

 

 

 

Lemon Juice is an ‘Anti-oxidant’ – a product that protects the surface of other foods from the oxygen in the atmosphere.  Oxygen reacts with foods like Bananas, Apples and Avocadoes and turns them an ugly dark color and makes the food lose their palatability.

Lemon Juice is also an excellent and necessary ingredient in many baked goods, entrees and beverages.

 

Entrees that require or are enhanced by the addition of Lemon Juice are:

Veal or Chicken Piccata   chicken-picatta/

 Grilled Shrimp  grilled-shrimp/

Beef, Chicken or Lamb Kabobs

Condiments that use Lemon Juice are:

 Seafood Cocktail Sauce   seafood-cocktail-sauce/

Salsa (Lemon or Lime Juice)

Guacamole (Lemon or Lime Juice)

 Baked goods that use Lemon Juice are:

Lemon Meringue Pie  lemon-meringue-pie/

Lemon Meringue Cookies

Lemon Sugar Cookies

Lemon Pound Cake

Lemon Cream

Lemon Mousse

Beverages that use Lemon Juice are:

Iced Tea

 Lemon Juice is also a great flavor enhancement for fruit such as Melons, Berries and Tropical Fruit such as Mangoes and Papaya.  If you have a lemon tree that provides you with an abundance of lemons, squeeze them and freeze the juice in ice cube trays for easy use whenever you need them.
