Granulated Lemon Peel is the flavorful dried zest of the tart citrus fruit, naturally preserved for easy storage and use in the kitchen. Lemon zest is often added to recipes to accentuate other flavors, its acidic and floral essence providing contrast with rich and/or sweet ingredients.
Lemons are the sour, tart-flavored fruit of the Citrus limon evergreen tree, thought to be native to East Asia. Beginning in the Far East and spreading westward throughout ancient times, lemons reached Europe via Italy around the first century AD. Like many other fruits, lemons were brought to the Americas by Spanish explorers in the 16th century. Since they need very warm climates to survive, lemons have been grown successfully in the tropical climate of Florida since the 16th century. Today, Florida and Arizona produce 95% of lemons grown in the United States.
The tart, tangy taste of lemon helps to flavor a wide variety of food and beverages. Lemon juice is a popular component in marinades for meat and fish, and lemon zest is often used as a flavoring component in baked goods.
Thick enough to support Chopped Hazelnuts and Diced Dates, this rich pudding is made with vanilla-infused milk and our Granulated Lemon Peel. While it's thickened with our Semolina Flour, the pudding gets its light texture from whipped cream folded in right before it’s chilled.
