    the80srule's Note:

    Does running your fruit over a box grater / hand grater not work? Here is a handy post on how to zest citrus fruits using your handheld kitchen appliances since the by-hand way is so time consuming! I keep a jar of dried orange zest around but I like fresh lemon/lime zest sometimes.

    LEMON ZEST

    LIME ZEST

    Directions:

    1. 1
      You will need a vegetable/potato peeler plus a mini food chopper or spice grinder for this. Blenders also work.
    2. 2
      Wash your fruit, then make sure it is perfectly dry.
    3. 3
      Run the peeler down the lemon/lime and make about 8 strips.
    4. 4
      Cut the strips in half.
    5. 5
      Put the strips in the chopper/grinder with the sugar and then pulse in the chopper until very fine. If using a blender, use the Liquefy setting for about 15-20 seconds.
    6. 6
      It's ready to be used in your recipe now!
    7. 7
      Got dried zest such as dried orange peel, etc? If you're like me and prefer the convenience of dried, here's how to make it close to fresh-- hydrate it with 3 parts water to 1 part peel. and let it stand for 15 minutes prior to using. I think powdered lemon rind works like regular zest and doesn't require rehydration.
    8. 8
      Please note-- rehydration DOUBLES the dry amount! For instance, if you hydrate 1 Tbsp zest with 3 Tbsp water, you will get 2 Tbsp "freshened" zest.

      I made lime zest without the sugar and it added a delightfully sweet and fresh flavor! Thanks! (-:
