Re: 100% lemon juice or real squeezed lemons in water
Real lemons taste LOTS better than RealLemon !
Unfortunately the bottled stuff is cheaper and more convenient but, in just plain water, the taste of the preservatives comes through too loud and clear.
I put extra bottled RealLemon in my CrystalLight along with some extra cyclamate (and dilute to double strength.), but I'd never dream of using it for a shrimp dish or on a fine sole filet....something where delicate taste is an issue.
