Cut & Sifted
Lemon peel is the outer skin of the citrus fruit of the same name, which is technically referred to as the exocarp. The peel actually consists of two components—the flavedo and the outer white pith of the rind. Because the peel is where the essential oils of the fruit reside, it retains robust flavor, even when dried.
Add lemon peel to tea blends, mulled wine, chutneys, baked goods and seasoning blends for pickling foods.
