Make Your Own Dried Orange Rind (Zest)

Dried orange rind perks up a lot of recipes, but it's very expensive to buy in a jar.

Make your own by grating the rind (not the white part), spreading it out on a dish and placing it the freezer for 2 or 3 weeks.

Can you explain, is it only good for 2-3 weeks or do you freeze it for that long and then store it elsewhere? Thanks.

I believe you are freezing it for 2 to 3 weeks to dry it. I'm sure once it is dried and put into an air tight container it should last for quite a while.

Lemon peel is good too.

Freezing it would possibly keep it moist and fresh.
