Nothing beats a nice cold glass of water with a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime juice. In restaurants, I grew accustomed to ordering “water with lemon” until rumors started swirling about how lemon wedges in restaurants are usually handled, how long they’ve been sitting out, etc. That was enough for this germ-a-phobe to stop ordering that lemon with her water! But then I remembered a product my cousin introduced me to a couple of years ago while we were camping….
These slim little packets contain nothing but crystallized lemon….no sugar….no sweeteners….just lemon. You can easily take them with you in a pocket or purse and always have the fresh taste of lemon available wherever you go!
But wait…there’s more! These packets are also available in Lime, Orange and Grapefruit. I haven’t tried the grapefruit yet, but the lime and orange also add a wonderful fresh taste to water.
Maybe you don’t love flavoring your water….the great thing about these little packets is you can use them the same way you would fresh lemon, lime or orange slices. Add to hot or iced tea, sparkling water or soda….ever added a squeeze of fresh lime to coca-cola? Yum! You can also use these in place of lemon, lime or orange juice in recipes….like adding a packet or two of the True Orange to oil, vinegar and honey along with some spices to make a nice, light salad dressing; or, adding a little True Lemon or True Orange to cream cheese frosting. The possibilities are endless!
