We love the citrus-y flavor of lemons and limes, but the extraordinarily expensive lemons don’t last very long these days, and limes are dry about ten minutes after cutting them, if they have any juice in them at all. So I’ve been reduced to relying on these two bottles of crystalized “juices”.
Not as good as the real thing, but not bad. I made some guacamole with the lime by mixing in a half teaspoon of crystals in about a teaspoon of water, and that worked well. I sprinkled some of the lemon directly on avocado slices, and that was okay. But I think mixing it with water first would make it more lifelike! Either one sprinkled directly in the potato soup worked well because of the massive amount of fluid available to rehydrate the crystals.
The bottles were $4. each at Amazon, and will probably last us for at least a year, if not longer.
