Preparing the Lemons
1. After you thoroughly clean your lemons, peel them clean.
2. Make sure you’re not peeling off a lot of the white and spongy part called the PITH. It’s bitter and we don’t want that.
Dehydrating the Lemon Peels
1. Using a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spread the lemon peels out evenly and set your oven to 175 degrees for about an hour and a half until they are mostly crispy and have a tan color (not burnt).
Creating the Lemon Pepper Seasoning
1. Using a small food processor or a coffee grinder, add the lemon peels, peppercorns, salt, thyme, dehydrated garlic & onion and pulse until your desired consistency. I like mine to have a little flaky and rustic look.
2. Store in a sealed jar and it should be fresh for up to 3-4 months.
Pro Tip
1. Make sure the blender/food processor or coffee grinder can grind up peppercorns. The blade on some is too high and will not blend the peppercorns properly.
