Test Kitchen Tips:
• Matcha is a green tea powder that can be found in natural food stores, the organic and tea section of some supermarkets or online specialty stores.
• To make your own dried lemon peel at home, remove lemon peel using a vegetable peeler. Place peel on a baking sheet. Bake in preheated 200ºF oven 3 hours. For best results, leave lemon peel in oven overnight to completely dry out. Crush dried peel in mortar and pestle or grind in clean coffee grinder.
• Use Matcha Green Tea with Ginger and Citrus Blend to prepare Matcha Green Tea Cake with Lemon Meringue Frosting and Matcha Baked Cod with Spinach Pesto and Tomato Salad.
