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.
