You've heard of Lemon Pepper? Here's something better!
First off, I apologize! I didn't even think of taking pictures of the various steps - though few. This was just something to prepare in order to make something else later... But the results are SO kewl!!!

Lemon Garlic Salt – I can see SO many uses! I'll share the recipe that inspired and informed me later, but you MUST try this. Zest 3-4 lemons – I really don't like the 'grating' method (perhaps it's my grater?), so I used a vegetable peeler and removed the outermost, yellow layer of 4 lemons. Spread them out on parchment, on a baking sheet, and baked at 200F for about 20 minutes. As my pieces were larger than requested, I turned the oven off and left the zest to dry for another half hour as it cooled.

I started to pulse the strips of semi-dried lemon zest in the food processor, then slowly added a cup of coarse Kosher salt. Once that was fully combined, about a quarter cup of roasted garlic flakes (purchased) went in...

Oh, there's lots more, but this will just give you a hint. My kitchen smells OH SO GOOD at this moment!!

Store in an airtight jar, and I promise – I'll show you an AWESOME way to use this in a couple days!
