Homemade Dried Lemon Peel in 3 Easy Steps
Got extra lemon peels? No need to waste them! Make homemade dried lemon peel in 3 easy steps. Give it a try!
- lemon peels
- Transfer peels to a dehydrator tray and spread them out. (I don't dry the end with the hard stem stub.)
- Put the tray in the dehydrator and dry around 100 degrees Fahrenheit for about 24 hours -- until the peels are curled up, dry and crispy.
- Grind/whizz the peels in a blender (such as a Vitamix or BlendTec) until they're as fine or coarse as you want. That's it! Store in an airtight jar in a cool location.
Now you've got dried lemon peel for your favorite scones, muffins, or other desserts — even loose tea mix. These Blueberry-Lemon Muffins (can be grain-free) are great!
