We have never tried it from the jar, but we did buy the packet mix and it was very so so

I did figure it out on my own. Unfortunately many of the great ideas were invented multiple times.
I am pleased to see the stores over here have taken notice of your advice Greg

When you live as far north as Montreal, citrus is shipped before it is ripe, so it won't be over ripe when it arrives. The only drawback is that I have to remember to buy an organic lemon or lime if I want some of the zest. Here in NA, they dye citrus fruits with carcinogenic dyes that aren't allowed in foods.
I will have to go and look at our lime juice bottle and see what is in it...I will be back

I agree with the comments about chopping being like meditation, I find it to be mindless effort that I enjoy.

Preservative 223 = sodium metabisulphate
Sodium metabisulfite - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Preservative 221 = sodium sulphite
Romsey Australia: Food Additives Codes

-ates, -ites, sulphur, sodium...

Eat this stuff and when you die you won't need to be embalmed.

I used a line similar to this to get my Mom to stop eating artificial sweeteners. Actually I think I thanked her for saving me money on embalming fees.

Don't even get me started on artificial sweeteners. All I can say to anybody who eats them is to surf the Internet and use your Google.

Same for HFCS. HFCS is the food manufacturing industry telling consumers "we don't care if we kill you as long as we can eke out another 1 percent of profit." (The only rationale I can see for using HFCS is because it's cheaper than cane sugar.)

Yes, I have heard shocking things about artificial sweeteners, never use them and never will
