Here's how to make homemade lemon peel powder for baking. Ever since the coronavirus pandemic hit us,we have been talking a lot about immunity-boosting foods. but little do you know that lemon packs a powerful antioxidant punch. There are several ways to include lemon in your diet. Lemonade is just one way. But today, we will not make lemonade, but lemon powder with the peel because the skin of lime and lemon is rich in vitamin c. In fact, it has more vitamin c than the juice itself. If you grow lemon at home (I do), there is no match. You can use the peel fearlessly. But if you do not, you may still use the lemon skin. I have shown how to remove pesticides from orange skin in another video.
After cleaning the skin, you ll need to grate the yellow or green part. Make sure you do not grate the pith or white part, which is v bitter. But you don't need to throw the pith. You may use it to preserve your lemon jelly or jam. I have a video on making lemon jam with Jaggery without artificial preservatives. The jam stays good forever. Mine was as good as fresh for a year until it got over. Do check the video on the channel here
This video has answers to the following questions: How do you make lemon powder for baking? You may either sun dry the lemon peels or dehydrate in airfryer, oven or dehydrator. I also make orange powder, carrot powder, milk powder, beet root powder at home.
How do you make dry lemon powder at home? Sun dry the grated yellow part. But don't forget to cover with a cloth if you keep it in direct sunlight. Else, the sun rays might burn the lemon skin. So cover with a cloth to prevent this. Lemon peel should dry in sunlight within a day or two. Then grind it to powder. You may store the homemade lemon powder in the refrigerator to preserve its aroma and flavor. So what are you waiting for? It's time to pack your diet with vitamin c and antioxidants. Sprinkle lemon powder over salad or add it to your bakes as a flavoring agent.
