Ann's Tips and Tricks

Lemon juice acts like ‘salt’ in fruit desserts. A little lemon enhances the flavor of soft fruits, making strawberries more intensely ‘strawberrier’, and blueberries, ‘blueberrier’. If you have problems with a sore mouth or throat, and are worried about the lemon juice adding too much acidity, either cut it down, or cut it out until you have healed.

If you have a microwave, put the all the ingredients into a ceramic or glass bowl big enough to hold them 2/3 full. Cover with a ceramic or glass dish and nuke at high power for 90 seconds. Remove stir to mix, and cover again. Return to the microwave for another 20-30 seconds. Leave covered in the microwave to sit and steam for 5 minutes more to finish cooking.
