Removing Citrus Zest for Later Use

Before you eat an orange, wash it well under running water. Then using a really good zester start grating the orange peel being careful not to peel any of the pith. Place in a freezer bag and use accordingly. You can do the same thing with fresh lemons. I use the orange peel in orange coffee cake and I use the lemon peel in lemon poppy seed muffins.

Before you squeeze juice from a lemon, grate off the rind into a freezer bag and freeze. Then when a recipe calls for lemon zest or rind, just pull it from the freezer.
