I saw some powered lemon peel at the spice stand at the market this past weekend. I bought it on a whim. They also had orange peel. I had seen some at a Christmas market in Nürnberg when we were there but stopped myself from buying it: it’s a super-fine powder that I had no idea how to use.
I’m home with a cold today and trying to force feed myself liquids to loosen up the paste-thick mucus I occasionally cough up. To that end, I made a tea pot full of ”ginger tea”: loads of sliced ginger soaked for a time in hot water. But this time, I added a teaspoon of the lemon peel powder and a tablespoon of honey. I let that sit while I ate my lunch.
Wow. It’s like ginger-flavored bitter lemon, but as a tea. AMAZING.
If you can’t find any where you live, and you want some, ping me and I’ll send you a care package.
