VINEGAR TIPS

Acids help proteins coagulate, so adding either vinegar or lemon juice to water used for poaching eggs helps keep the eggs from spreading out.

To eliminate cooking odors, boil a teaspoon of white vinegar in a cup of water.

White vinegar will remove many fruit, tea and coffee stains.

Lime deposits in a tea kettle can be removed by filling it with 1/2 water and 1/2 distilled (white) vinegar, bring to a boil, remove from heat and let stand overnight.

Pour some white (distilled) vinegar on a cloth to remove spots from stainless steel.

Wash the inside of your breadbox with a mild solution of vinegar and water to help control mold.

SPECIAL NOTE - Iron and calcium in plant foods are not highly absorbed by the body. Spinach contains a chemical called oxalic acid, which binds with iron and calcium and reduces the absorption of these minerals. To improve iron absorption, spinach should be eaten with vitamin C-rich foods such as orange juice, tomatoes, or citrus fruit.
