Another dehydrated favourite of mine using a bucket full of lemons. When the Lemon tree is over producing.
I juice them to freeze either in ice cubes for drinks or in small containers for cooking mainly for when my Lemon Tree is not producing as much.
The peel has such a beautiful intense flavour.
After grating all the lemons I made a syrup of water and sugar over a medium heat until sugar dissolved and than placed my peel into the syrup and allowed to steep for half an hour on low .
A beautiful yellow intensity and the smell of lemon was amazing. 🍋🍋
I then drained the syrup into a jug and allowed the peel to completely drain all liquid.
I then lined a baking tray with parchment paper and spread the peel out.
Preheating your oven on high 200 degrees.
I placed the tray into the oven to allow the peel to crisp up stirring often and keeping an eye not to burn.
Once cooked remove from oven and allow to cool.
Oh My Goodness the crunch and flavour is just so Amazing.
Sprinkle over a salad on vegetables , fish etc it is so good.
3 1/2 cups water
2 cups Sugar
Bring to the boil to dissolve the sugar than lower temperature add Lemon Peel and allow to steep for 1/2 hour .
This can also be done with Oranges – sprinkle with cinnamon after baked 🍊🍊🍊
Store peel in airtight container. The syrup can be used in so many dishes.
I use syrup to make my Lemoncello
