Zesting Citrus

Use this simple tip to remove the zest from lemons so you'll have fresh citrus zest of any size in no time.

When I want citrus zest for a recipe, I use a vegetable peeler to get strips of the peel. This way I have more control of avoiding the pith. If I want big pieces of zest I either julienne or chop the peel, or I use a spice grinder to make tiny pieces of zest in an instant.
