Sodium Citrate hack

I have never used sodium citrate in mac and cheese because I could find it only in large quantities, for around $20.

Today an Emmymade video popped up on FB. She made 1.5 cups of coarsely grated cheddar into a smooth sauce using a knob of unsalted butter and two Alka Seltzer tablets dissolved in water, nuking in spurts.
I was unable to link it here but you can find the details on her FB page.
Hope to try this once it’s no longer too hot to think about cooking…maybe in 3 months? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::weary:

Why would you use something which includes aspirin which is an active drug substance and also shouldn’t be heated as it decomposes in a compound which is labeled as teratogenic

You can add Velveeta to your cheese sauce as it contains sodium citrate
