Beware of the Lemon Slice

Ouch! This one is gonna hurt! If:
You have ever been served water with lemon in a restaurant;

Or, your Chivas on the rocks is served with a double wedge of lemon and a twist is run around the rim of the glass;

Or, you like fresh lemon with your tilapia dinner;

Or, lemon slices are served with anything you order in a restaurant:
Watch this short video.

In order to be a Certified Personal Chef, I've had to pass the national Serv-Safe exam which is a national exam testing for food handling, food storage and food safety.

Bottom line.

Wash everything!

Lemons, limes, bananas, oranges, peaches, onions, shallots, potatoes.

You get the idea.

I cook a lot.

Every day.

All day.

I wash everything.

You know what, Deb? Sometimes it's just better NOT TO KNOW! I sure wish you hadn't shared this one with me!

On a positive note, I do believe that alcohol kills all those bugs, so I'll only take my twist of lime/lemon with vodka, tequila, etc., etc., etc. from now on!
