Occasionally I work as a waitress where they put lemons on the edge of drinks. Last night was a night where I had to cut lemons for drinks. Typically the ends of lemons are discarded, which seems very wasteful to me, so I had an idea.
I took the lemon ends home and carefully washed the lemons, cut off the stem and blossom ends, and then sliced them thinly. I arranged them on the dehydrator in a single layer.
After they became dry and crisp, I put them away for storage. They will make lovely tea along with the rose hips I dehydrated when I made the rose hip jelly.
What do you think Country Sister? Are you ready for a tea competition as well?
