Diff between Ascorbic Acid and Citric Acid?
Would someone tell me the difference between Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) and Citric Acid - Anhydrous?
When I dip okra to prevent discoloration before it is sold at my farmers' market, I use Vitamin C tablets dissolved in water for the dip solution.
When I use my dehydrator for drying peaches, I use powdered Ascorbic Acid in a solution to dip them.
When I make some jams that the fruits are too sweet, I use Citric Acid instead of Lemon Juice for tartness.
How interchangeable are these and how would you know when to use which one if they aren't?
