Lemon Zest

This lemon peel zest is three times stronger than fresh and guaranteed to be free of bitter pith. It is great in desserts and salad dressings. Soak it in a small amount of water for 15 minutes to release the full flavor before adding it to dry ingredients.

Details

Lemon peel has two layers; the oily outer skin and the bitter, spongy pith beneath it. This zest is made from just the outer layer, so it has a wonderfully strong lemon flavor and fragrance with no bitterness. It adds a delicious lemon tang to salad dressings, marinades, or beverages. When using in baked goods, substitute ? as much dried lemon zest in place of the fresh zest called for. You may wish to soak the dried lemon zest in warm water for 15 minutes before adding to dry ingredients. Because of its high oil content, store this dried lemon zest in airtight glass or ceramic containers.
