How can I use dried meyer lemon peel?

Does anyone have any ideas?

I came across a marvelous spice resource and scooped up a bottle of this stuff before taking the time to think about what I could do with it.

It's not ground, but in small minced pieces.

is that strange if the product isn't hydrated? I've never used anything like this before!

I usually dry some leftover organic orange peels, minced like your lemon peel and I do agree that it doesn't really impart too much flavour when simply sprinkled on top of stuff.

I use it as is in braises and fruit compotes (added at the end of the cooking time); for baking purposes I grind it up: using mortar and pestle with a bit of salt or sugar as an abrasive works ok for small quantities. A (very clean!) coffee or spice grinder (or food processor for bigger batches) however produces a truly spectacular, intensely orange-coloured, fragrant powder, which is perfect for sprinkling on all the things mentioned above (I totally agree with the "sprinkle on anything!" part).
