Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

Grate only the bright yellow portion of the lemon peel for best flavor. The "pith," or white part of the skin, is bitter.

Betty’s mixes won gold. The Edison Best New Product Awards are given annually and are voted on by a not-for-profit group. Enjoy this recipe using one of the mixes.
