While making supper last month, the recipe called for me to brush my fish with lemon juice. I don't own a pastry brush, and all of the paintbrushes we have in our house have been used to paint with, and I'm not quite sure how good paint is to ingest. I started wracking my brain for an idea on how to get a little bit of juice on my fish without drowning the poor things when my eyes alighted on this little gadget.
I have several of these syringes. The pharmacy gives them to me every time one of the kids has antibiotics. And because I like to not throw anything away, I have several lying around. Why I keep them in my Tupperware cupboard is beyond me, but there they were. Lying there innocently. So, I used them to "brush" my fish with lemon juice. It worked great! A couple of weeks ago, I used them again to "brush" my zucchini with olive oil. You definitely don't need a pastry brush for jobs like that if you have one of these lying around.
