Lemon Peel Pieces
Lemon Peel Pieces contains the zest of Lemon. We use this coarse granulated peel for tea flavoring. It is also use in marinades that require a citrus flavor. The cultivation of citrus has a history of at least 2000 years, and the fruit was used long before then. Lemons originated in India and China; the Greeks, when introduced to Lemons, prized them for both their culinary and medical properties.
Besides used in teas, dried Lemon Zest Pieces are used in desserts, mulled drinks, added to sugar and used in cooking meat or fish stew. A little Lemon Peel mixed in with cheese sauces lightens the dish. Granulated Lemon Peel is also used in the Italian seasoning mixture Gremolada.
