About Lemon Peel, Granules
Lemon Peel contains the zest of Lemon. This granulated peel is useful for 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.
Dried Lemon Peel is 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.
