Lemon Pepper


Lemon Pepper is a mixture of cracked black pepper and also lemon zest.  You can certainly make your own lemon pepper by zesting the lemon and mixing it with the cracked pepper (allowing the blend to dry first before bottling it).  Mixing your own lemon pepper gives you the control to add other seasonings to the blend: garlic granules, onion powder, salt, or other herbs are certainly flavoring options.  Lemon pepper is a delicious coating on chicken, fish and even along the edge of a hamburger.

Thanks for the tip. I hadn't thought of making my own.

I love lemon pepper! I like it on a hard boiled egg.

I really enjoy adding lemon pepper to dishes but had not considered making my own. Great idea!
