Zest

Zest

By
From
Encyclopedia of Food and Cookery

The name given to the outside coloured peel of any citrus fruit, such as lemon, orange, grapefruit and lime. Zest contains essential oils that lend a distinctive flavour to any dish in which it is used. To remove zest: Scrape surface of fruit with a very fine grater using short sharp strokes; or rub surface with sugar lumps until they become impregnated with citrus oils; or pare very thinly with a vegetable peeler. Make certain you do not include any white pith with the zest as this can make the dish bitter.
