Lemon peel or lemon zest is the familiar cut and dried yellow outer layer of the lemon. It retains its robust sweet-tart flavor even when dried because the peel is where the essential oils of the fruit reside. The lemon peel can be used dehydrated or reconstituted in recipes.
Lemons are among the world's most popular citrus fruits and can be found in cuisines across the world in both savory and sweet dishes. It is commonly used in pickling spices and is very popular in tea blends.
Lemon peel is a nutritional powerhouse and contains a spectrum of vitamins (especially vitamin C), minerals, and fiber. It also stimulates the appetite by encouraging the release of gastric juices to digest food. Lemon peels are rich in antioxidants which are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body. Lemons have many widely known uses, adding a refreshing zest to your water, cleaning household items, and adding flavor to numerous dishes are just the start.
