SPECIAL ACID BLEND
What else can you do with the Special Acid Blend (SAB)?
1 level teaspoon of SAB is 2.66g or 2 and 2/3 of a gram. 1 level tablespoon of SAB is 14.8 g.
4g of SAB is the same as a lemon.
If your recipe for cheese suggests 4 lemons for 4 pints of milk at 80C then just pop in 16g or a level tablespoon of SAB instead.
Making Buttermilk/yogurt substitute. To make buttermilk for scones and other baked goods use just 1g, a good pinch or 1/2 a teaspoon of SAB in a 240ml cup of milk.
Making farm cheese, quick mozzarella or cottage cheese. Anything you'd use lemon for. And
Add to Sugar, add some flavouring for a sherbet dip or 'Fun Dip'. Add some bicarbonate of soda to it for fizz in the mouth.
Coat home made sweets for extra tart taste.
Add a pinch to cooking to add a little acidity if, say, a stew, etc is a little fatty.
For descaling the kettle
Getting lime scale off from around the taps and the sink. See below. You don't need much and it works a treat. I priced Kettle Descaler in Tesco, my SAB is cheaper per gram. If you're using it to descale your kettle then you know it's safe to drink from afterwards. If there's a bit of water left after making a cup of tea, just a pinch or two of this in the kettle while it's still hot brings it up a treat. Just rinse it out with cold water before using again.
Add a teaspoon to a cup of warm water and run it through your coffee maker. Rinse with a cup of fresh water afterwards.
Add a teaspoon to a tablespoon of hot water, dip in a piece of kitchen towel/paper, wrap it around the end of your scaled up tap, leave for 10 minutes then scrub with an old tooth brush. Repeat if needed. This works on shower heads too.
Sprinkle a pinch around your taps when you're cleaning your sink. It will sparkle with no effort.
