Homemade Organic Liquid Lemon Pectin

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • organic zested lemon peels, pith, rinds and seeds; Save them in a gallon size freezer bag in the freezer until the bag is full. (save the zest for other recipes)
  • unchlorinated and unfluoridated water

Here’s How I do it:

  1. Place the organic zested lemon peels, peels and seeds into a large stock pot.
  2. Pour enough water to not quite cover the cores and peels.
  3. Bring to a boil; Reduce heat and simmer for 60 minutes.
  4. Strain overnight through a jelly bag or with several layers of cheesecloth.
  5. The pulp can be used for composting and the thick liquid is the lemon pectin.
  6. Use in place of liquid pectin in recipes.
  7. Enjoy!
