Lemons are a fruit that we just can't get enough of. You can use lemon juice, zest, and rind, in a wide variety of foods and drinks. Lemon juice is used to make soft drink recipes, easy chicken breast recipes, lemonade recipes, and cocktail recipes. Lemon juice is used in a variety of recipes from marinades for fish, and the tenderizing of meat where the acid partially hydrolyzes tough collagen fibers, tenderizing the meat. The low pH in lemons denatures the proteins in meat, causing them to dry out when cooked. Lemon juice is often used in the United Kingdom to add to pancake recipes. Lemon juice may also be used for cleaning tips and ideas. A halved lemon dipped in salt or baking powder is used to brighten copper cookware, the acid in the lemon dissolves the tarnish, and the abrasives assist the cleaning. Lemons are an excellent source of Vitamin C, with lesser amounts of dietary fiber, calcium, protein, and iron.

The caper bush is the plant that is most known for its edible flower buds called capers often used as a seasoning, and the fruit known as caper berries, both of which are typically consumed pickled. The salted and pickled caper bud which is simply called a caper is often used as a seasoning or garnish. Capers are a popular ingredient in Mediterranean recipes, especially Maltese, Cypriot, Italian, and Aeolian. The caper buds, when they are ready to pick, are a dark olive green and about the size of a fresh kernel of corn. When capers are picked, they are then pickled in salt, or a salt and vinegar solution, and then drained. The intense flavor is developed as mustard oil which is released from each caper bud. You will find capers used in a wide variety of recipes from pasta recipe, easy chicken breast recipes, Italian cooking and more.
