This episode takes us back to one of our favourite fruits, the mighty lemon. We adore lemons in so many ways, both sweet and savoury. Oleo-Saccharum is a syrup made from lemon peels. This is great if you are making a recipe using lemon juice and then don't quite know what to do with the peels. Here is a solution that keeps the peels out of the compost bin, and you end up with a delicious sweet and zingy syrup.

And you can also use any citrus fruit you love - oranges, grapefruit, lime, or a combination of any of these!

Oleo-Saccharum is made by marinating citrus peels in sugar until you have a syrup to strain out (about 24 hours). It doesn't make a lot, but the flavour is intense. It is commonly used in cocktails, it can also be drizzled over roasted veggies or on ice cream. We used it for drinks, one cocktail and one non-alcoholic mocktail.

Erin made a White Linen Mocktail using non-alcoholic gin, oleo-saccharum, rose water, cucumber and soda. 

Heather made an Oleo Lemon Drop Martini with vodka, oleo-saccharum, and cointreau.

Give Oleo-Saccharum a try and let us know what you make with it!
