They do not have to be all crushed perfectly, but this will open up their aroma and natural oils.

Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.

Zest all the lemons. Mix with crushed peppercorns and salt. Spread out on parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake on lowest setting until the zest is completely dried.
