Lemon Peel Granules or Lemon Zest – Lemon peel comes from the outer yellow layer of lemon. Lemon peel itself is slightly sweet and fruity and smells of lemon. But the white layer underneath is bitter, so lemon peel does contain a little of that bitterness also. Try using in cakes for desserts. Also use in fish or meat stews.
This item is often referred to as Lemon Zest. When using lemon zest granules, we recommend you use 1/3 for which the recipe calls. Lemon peel granules have a very concentrated lemon flavor that is three times as strong as lemon juice.
