Candied Lemon Peel!
Make candied lemon peel once, and you realize how great it can be. Do it right and you know that it takes time, lots of time and lots of space. The results are always enjoyable if you can get the correct lemons when you want them.
On the other hand, when the peels come in from France, we can't but all eat a few (testing, we are always testing) just to ensure our memory is still working. These peels are the best we have tasted when it comes to price to volume.
Now, don't be thinking we are looking for cheap, because we are not. We are still looking for peels that we would use ourselves. And, in fact, these are so good we eat them out of hand like candy.
Bakers know that these are the ones to get.
