Use this powder as you would use lemon traditionally. It will significantly flavour your broths, juices, marinades. It goes perfectly with sea food, fish and crustaceans, with white meat, pork and veal and poultry. On the sweet side it will perfume your pies, fruit salads, creams, jams, ice creams and sorbets. It will transform a simple yogurt or white cheese into a dessert.
