Lemon Juice for Making Bread

Rather than buying specialised flours, you can use plain, US all purpose, flour and add 2 Tbsp. lemon juice to provide the acidic environment that yeast requires. Don't forget salt, which helps to stretch gluten. Keep ingredients and utensils as warm as possible, and if your upper arm isn't aching, you haven't kneaded enough!

Lemon juice is citric acid. Acetic acid would be vinegar. Either will work.
