Yepper, you can substitute :-) Rule of thumb is to start with equal amount of dried vs fresh. You may need to double dried lemon peels but orange peels may need to even be tripled. You'll just have to taste test as you go ;-)

I like frozen better. I've seen how much they spray citrus, so I wash with detergent and soak. Then I use the whole lemon peel, grind all in food processor, and freeze in a plastic container. Very handy, just grab a pinch for every recipe. Any citrus-based smoothie is zinged up with lemon peel.
