Dry Candied Setouchi Lemon Peel, 1.05 oz
This candied lemon peel highlights the refreshing and elegant flavor of the remarkable lemons grown in the Setouchi region of Ehime Prefecture. This region, often described as Japan’s Mediterranean or Aegean Sea, is well-known for its mild climate, abundant sunlight, and refreshing ocean breezes, which makes it perfect for growing citrus. The harvested lemon is carefully peeled, candied with beet sugar, and dried completely, using traditional methods. This brings out a superb moderately sweet flavor with the bright tartness of Setouchi Lemons. It’s not sticky at all, and its sugar coating does not crumble off. The peel has a firm texture to bite into, so you can snack on it as-is. It can also be used in a variety of desserts and drinks, adding a pleasant kick.

It’s particularly great with creamy flavors, so we highly recommend garnishing yogurt or ice cream with it or putting it atop cream cheese on a bagel. You can also use it for cooking. Some excellent ways to appreciate its beautiful flavor is to mix it into pastry dough, cake batter, ice cream, cheesecake, or dessert fillings. If you are more adventurous, you can add it into granola, chocolate bark or simply coat it with chocolate. When chopped into small pieces, it turns into a gemstone-like garnish that can elevate your dish to new heights.
