Frugal Grandma’s Thrifty Lemon Tips

Miss Thrifty2 October 1, 2009

uses-for-a-lemon Frugal Grandma spotted the Six Thrifty Uses For A Lemon post, and kindly forwarded a couple of tips of her own. They have a lemon+saucepan theme:

When you boil a Christmas pudding – or any pudding come to that – put a slice or two of lemon into the water. It will stop the saucepan turning black; in fact it will clean it!

If you have a discoloured saucepan, cook plums,  rhubarb or apples in it (always putting a slice of lemon in with the apples, for flavour).   These clean the saucepan beautifully.   I don’t know the effect on your insides when you eat the fruit, but I’m still alive and kicking.

F.G.    xx

You know, for the forthcoming Miss Thrifty blog revamp, I’m thinking of giving this septuagenarian superstar her own section; what do you think?
