Author Notes: These are tangy and sweet… they are chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside… and they are slightly floral tasting and the lemon flavor is really concentrated… and, oh yeah, they are great in a cup of tea… but my favorite way to use them is to snack on them right out of the jar…
When I dehydrate citrus fruit, I always leave the peel on. The peel tastes great, has great texture and contains lots of valuable nutrients. Lemon peel contains calcium, potassium and vitamin C. Lemons are good for your stomach, they help detoxify your body, they balance your pH and they act as an antibacterial.
Lavender adds iron, calcium, and vitamin A to your diet. I absolutely love the taste of lavender — there’s something so clean and fresh about it. And it pairs perfectly with the zippy concentrated lemony tastes in these dehydrated disks.
There’s no need for a recipe here. Just dust off your dehydrator…
- Wash the lemons. Slice them about 1/8-inch thick, leaving the peel on. Lay the slices on dehydrator sheets. Sprinkle generously with lavender. Dehydrate about 10 hours at 135 degrees, or until the rinds are crispy.
