Lemon & Rosemary Salt Seasoning

Lemon and rosemary salt seasoning.

Citrus fruits are something we all enjoy but the peels are often discarded. Rather than wasting them why not use them? There are a number of ways that citrus peels can be put to good use. They can be made into natural all-purpose cleaners, bug repellents, tea and used in cooking.

Lemon & Rosemary Salt Seasoning is simple to make and goes nicely with roast chicken, fish dishes and it’s ever so delicious sprinkled over hot chips!

To make the seasoning, peel lemon as thinly as you can trying not to include too much of the white pith as it contains a lot of bitterness. Dry the skins (use a dehydrator, over or the sun). Once completely dry, allow to cool and then place them into a spice blender / food processor along with course salt and some dried rosemary and whiz them up.

Lemon pepper seasoning can also be made using peppercorns instead of salt or blend the dried lemon peels with sugar to use in sweet baked goods. . .
