Tip: Leftover zest

Just a quick one…

Dried lime and lemon zest

If you find a recipe calls for fresh citrus juice, zest that beast first! Leave the tiny curls of deliciousness to dry in a bowl overnight (agitate to rotate them to the air a few times if you remember) and then pop into containers for storage. Sprinkle into meals for an extra little zing as you cook.

I do this mainly with lemon and lime and use them so often that I never seem to build up a decent amount of them. I sprinkle over chicken, in stir fries, seafood, even in icings.
