comment What causes lemons to be bitter when cooked and how to avoid it?
@ashes999 I need to double check some references, but I believe the bitter compounds are water soluble (the citrus oil isn't). Did you discard the water before using the peels?

comment How does double-bagging sous vide food affect cook time?
@Brendan At the moment, Ziplock bags with the water displacement method. I realize that increases the amount of insulating air sneaking in.

@Brendan Absolutely correct! Straining + reblending (reserve a bit of the syrup for this, just in case) may help a bit.
