Recipe Notes

In this recipe, lemon peel is where all the magic happens. The peels are very high in calcium, potassium, vitamin C, and fiber and folate. Folate is the natural form of the synthetic counterpart we are used to hearing about called folic acid. However folic acid (the synthetic nutrient) is harder for the body to actually use than the real nature made folate.
