How do you neutralize taste?
Adding something sweet (such as a pinch of sugar) or sour (such as a splash of citrus juice or vinegar) may downplay the saltiness. If it’s a soup or a stew, you can try to neutralize the flavor by adding water or unsalted stock, but keep in mind that this may also affect the consistency of the dish.
How do you cut the taste of too much lemon?
You need only a small amount of baking soda for a too-lemony dish. Roughly 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda for 1 cup of liquid should be enough. Too much baking soda can lead to a soapy taste, so use it sparingly. If possible, don’t add salt to your food until you have neutralized the excess acid from the lemon juice.
How do you get the bitterness out of lemon water?
Right before serving add 4 cups of cold sparkling water (or plain water) to the pitcher and serve over ice cubes with lemon slices frozen in them and a sprig of mint. Make sure to remove the lemon slices from the pitcher after a maximum of 4 hours to avoid the lemon infused water from becoming bitter.
