**Lemon Peel: A Zesty Citrus Delight**


*Lemon peel* refers to the outer, colored part of the lemon's skin. It is prized for its vibrant flavor and aromatic qualities, adding a burst of citrusy freshness to various culinary creations.

**Culinary Uses:**

1. **Zesting:** Use a zester or a fine grater to obtain the outermost layer of the lemon peel, known as zest. Lemon zest is rich in essential oils and provides a concentrated citrus flavor.

2. **Cooking:** Diced or chopped lemon peel can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. It is a versatile ingredient in marinades, dressings, sauces, and baked goods.

3. **Baking:** Incorporate grated or chopped lemon peel into recipes for cakes, cookies, muffins, and bread. It imparts a bright, tangy flavor that enhances the overall taste.

4. **Infusions:** Steep lemon peel in hot water to create a simple yet refreshing lemon peel tea. It can also be used in infusions for cocktails or flavored water.

5. **Preserving:** Candied lemon peel, made by cooking lemon peel in sugar syrup, is a sweet and tangy treat used in confections and desserts.


For fresh lemon peel, store lemons in the refrigerator, and use the peel promptly. If you've separated the peel, store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freeze it for longer preservation.


Lemon peel is a versatile ingredient that allows you to capture the essence of citrus in various culinary creations. Whether it's the fragrant zest or the diced peel, it can elevate both the flavor and aroma of your dishes. Always wash lemons thoroughly before zesting or using the peel, especially if they are not labeled as organic.
