Lemon Pepper Spice Mix

Updated: Nov 19, 2020

We do our best to use everything in our kitchen and reduce food waste as much as possible. The next time you've finished juicing a lemon, consider reserving the rind. Gently scrape off the pith (the white flesh under the peel) and leave the lemon skin to dry. You can then use the dried peels for this delicious spice mix (or in a variety of teas). Enjoy!

When we use fresh lemon juice, we always dry the lemon peels. Just gently scrape off the white pith (which tastes bitter) as best as you can with a sharp knife.

Dried Lemon Peels. After removing the pith we just lay them out on paper towel on top of the counter for a few days, until they are dry enough to snap when we bend them.

Once we have dried enough lemon peels, we run them through a small coffee bean grinder that we use exclusively for grinding spiced.



Ways To Use This Spice Mix This spice rub is particularly good with chicken and lamb, but can also be used on pork and beef. It's also lovely on rice as a side dish to simple fish entrées. We love this Crispy Rhubarb Lemon Chicken Bake recipe which involves tossing the crisped rhubarb in Lemon Pepper Spice Mix. We're also excited to try a Lemon Pepper Pork Stir Fry. Lemon Pepper is also a classic flavour for chicken wings, and can make a tasty addition to lamb! It's also a tasty addition to homemade burger patties and pasta. Even a little bit on grilled steak can add a new dimension to your red meat feast.



Side dishes: This pairs really well with a spinach, berry and goat cheese salad.
