Our lemon peel or lemon zest contains a high percentage of essential oils which produces amazing flavor. The lemon peel is carefully removed, discarding any white pith that may lie beneath, and quickly dried to preserve the flavor. If using dried lemon peel in place of fresh lemon zest, use 1/3 of what the recipe calls for as it is three times stronger than fresh.

“Huge lemons, cut in slices, would sink like setting suns into the dusky sea, softly illuminating it with their radiating membranes, and its clear, smooth surface aquiver from the rising bitter essence.” - Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)

Once mainly used in baking, because of its high oil content lemon peel is now commonly used in recipes containing seafood, chicken, pork, vegetables, rice, marinades and dressings. Reconstitute if necessary by soaking in water for 15 to 20 minutes to produce a fresh lemon flavor.
