Lemon Juice, Reconstituted

(Lemon Juice, Reconstituted)  Reconstituted lemon juice is, as the name implies, made by adding water back into concentrated lemon juice.  Because it's a processed food project, it also requires the flavor to be adjusted in order to main a uniform flavor.  This is accomplished by adding lemon oil that has been extracted from the peel.  And because it is a processed project, all bottled brands that we have encountered, have also added preservatives to maintain color and freshness, which usually include sodium bisulfate and sodium benzoate.  We recommend buy brands that have the least number and quantities of additives.  We mostly use bottled lemon juice in recipes that require a large quantity of lemon juice (a cup or more), for convenience, or when fresh lemons are not available.  Reconstituted lemon juice is not a substitute for the flavor of fresh lemons.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
