The other day I saw a lemon bar recipe I really wanted to try. After spending an entire day feeling awful I decided I would make some lemon bars for my husband and myself. My lemons were about ready to be thrown away but the zest still looked viable - or viable enough.
The first pin provides some info on how to whiten your whites that have become dingy.
The second felt like a good plan about what to do about my lemon rinds.
I cut off all of my lemon rinds and placed them in a Mason jar for later.
Meanwhile I cut up my lemons. Placed them in a large pot.
Filled it with water and dropped in about half of the lemons I now had.
Once the water began to boil I put some of my husbands dingy shirts into the water. It appeared I'd been too cautious about water displacement and ended up needing to add more very hot water to the mix.
I let the water come back up to a boil. Turned off the heat. Put a lid on my pot and let it sit for an hour.
I didn't have any clean Mason lids so I had to clean some. Once they were ready to go I filled the Mason jar containing the lemon rinds with vinegar.
The instructions for your new vinegar cleaner is to let your jar sit for 10 days. So . . . . I guess I'll be concluding this in around 10 days?
