Lemon peel is the zest from dehydrated lemons – this is the outer portion (or skin) of the lemon with the white membrane or pith removed. It is also the portion of the fruit that contains the highest oil content (and provides the most flavor), which is why it is so often called for in baking.
If you have ever zested your own lemons, you know how labor intensive that can be. Using our dehydrated lemon peel (also called lemon zest) will save you time in cooking when the recipe calls for lemon zest. You can use our Lemon zest dehydrated or reconstituted for all of your lemon peel needs.
