Frugality is the act of using money or supplies in a prudent way.
I truly aim to waste very little in our home. You can imagine my disdain when I found a Meyer Lemon that had rolled behind a jar on my counter, threatening to ripen past the point of no return.
Quite a shame for the mighty Meyer Lemon. ” Ah, what to do with it?”, I pondered.
Homemade Lemon Sugar! Why not?! Perfect for baking, garnishing desserts, or rimming your cocktail glass! Sure!
Homemade Lemon Sugar
Zest from one Meyer lemon
1 cup sugar (I use this brand)
Combine lemon zest and sugar in a food processor. Pulse until combined well – Mine took on the appearance of powdered sugar at this point. Spread the sugar out on a baking sheet that’s been lined with parchment paper and allow to air dry for two hours.
At this point it is ready to use! Place in a cute mason jar and store in the refrigerator for up to three weeks.
How will you use YOUR lemon sugar?
