You never have zest when you need it , right? And no, I'm not referring to energy for life or the soap, but rather to the yummy goodness you get from citrus skins. It always seems that I need either fresh citrus juice or zest, but seldom do I need both. Or is that just what happens to me?
My solution - save the hollowed out rinds after juicing. Just pop the lemon, lime, or orange rinds into a plastic bag and place them in the freezer. Next time a recipe calls for zest, just grab one of the frozen rinds and grate! Added bonus: frozen rinds are easier to zest, too!
