QUICK TIP- How often do you have a recipe that calls for lemon zest and realize that there is not a lemon to be found in your house? Here is a way to be sure you always have some. Whenever you have a recipe that calls for lemon juice, before you cut the lemon, wash and then zest it. Take that zest, put it on a sheet of wax paper, fold it into an flat envelope and then put it into a zipper bag. Put the bag in the freezer and then whenever you need some for a recipe, simply pull out an envelope. Each envelope is the zest of one lemon, so it is already measured out. After you zest, go ahead and juice the lemon. By doing this, you are getting the full use out of your produce and you'll never find yourself short of a needed ingredient.
