Organic Lemon Peel Granules
Country of Origin:
Our organic lemon peel granules is also known as lemon zest. When using lemon peel granules instead of fresh lemon zest, remember to use 1/3 for which the recipe calls. If it calls for a tablespoon, use 1 teaspoon, because dried zest has a very concentrated lemon flavor. Granulated lemon zest mixed with cheese is one way to lighten a dish, with this fresh citrus flavor and aroma.
Great for use in baking recipes like cakes, muffins, and scones. It is best to let it rehydrate before use in baking. Lemon zest is also good for use in marinades and rubs, to flavor craft beers, as a garnish for a pop of color or in soaps and other cosmetic applications.
Our lemon zest granules pairs well with other spices in many meat and vegetable dishes. For chicken and fish, cook lemon zest with rosemary, parsley, and chives for a predictable pleaser. Vegetables love garlic, chives, lemon zest, and thyme, either sautéed or in a roasting pan, releasing pungent and aromatic citrus notes for hours. Additionally, a simple dry rub for beef short ribs just combines lemon peel granules, chives, and chicken stock.
