Ask Mary: Reducing Fruits in Cooking

Dear Mary,
Why do you reduce acidic fruits like lemons, limes, oranges in cooking?
Fruity Girl

Hi Fruity Girl,
The reason that you reduce acidic citrus is because you want to bring out the natural sweetness in the fruit. By reducing and cooking it out, you are actually allowing the natural juices to flow freely.
Enjoy! Mary
