  1. I’m trying to understand why there is any significance whether the lemon juice was precooked or not. Even if the juice was precooked, but being that it is a liquid that totally cooled down, the former bishul should have no further significance. Am I missing something?

    1. However regarding bishul in a kli sheini, a precooked liquid will not cook in a kli sheini as it would be considered koshei habishul. See M:B 318-23.
