substitute?

I was just about to start cutting artichoke hearts and realized I had no lemons. Would a diluted rice wine vinegar do the trick? Thanks.

Probably anything acidic would work.

Yes, I agree that all you need is a little acid. Or a dish in which you won't mind a little discoloration. I've long had the feeling that the acid treatment was a bit of hype. I'd welcome data to the contrary.

A crush vitamin C tab dissolved in water will work also.
