Lemon peel is a flavorful and practical addition to any kitchen's collection of spices and herbs. Shelf-stable, it can be used in a wide variety of ways. Keep in mind that because it is dried, the flavor is very concentrated.
Suggested Use
  • Use 1 teaspoon of Lemon Peel for every 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon zest a recipe calls for. It can be crushed in a mortar and pestle, or given a quick whirl in a food processor, blender or coffee grinder to achieve a texture that can be sprinkled for culinary use.
    One historical way of using dried Lemon Peel is to add it to the water used to boil grains such as rice or quinoa. After the grains are cooked, the chunks of peel can be removed before eating. Dried Lemon Peel can also be sprinkled on the bottom of roasting pans of meat as an aromatic lemony addition.
    One of our favorite ways to use Lemon Peel is as a flavorful addition to loose leaf tea blends. It can be added to taste to black or green teas for a bright citrus burst of flavor. Careful not to steep too long, or it can become bitter. The small chunks are the perfect size to use in tea for steeping purposes. We think it pairs particularly well with deep flavored black tea.
