Once your start making your own extracts you’ll never go back to store-bought. Today I’ll show you Organic DIY Lemon Extract – how to make your own organic extract at home; you won’t believe how easy it is! Only 2 ingredients and you’re going to save money making it versus buying the store bought stuff.
If you’re lucky enough to have neighbors with lemon trees (lots of them here in Phoenix), they are usually happy to have you come pick some for them. Last week my neighbor put out a big box of lemons with some grocery bags and a sign that said ‘Please Take Some’.
I love lemon extract in baking (lemon poppy seed muffins!!!!). And any time you need a kick of lemon flavor, 1 teaspoon of extract equals about 1 teaspoon of lemon zest (peel). But did you know that Organic DIY Lemon Extract has health benefits as well?
Pure (zero crap), lots of flavor AND health benefits! Let’s make some!
