Cooking Technique: Acids

You know when you taste a soup or sauce and it’s just missing a little something but you can’t quite figure out what? There are times when seasoning more with more salt, pepper and herbs just isn't the answer. For those times, the missing ingredient is usually a dash of Acid. It’s an acidic ingredient such as: 

  • vinegar
  • wine
  • citrus juice (lemon, lime, or orange)  

A few drops can go a long way for flavor!
