Hi,

There is a website that sells zest products. Zesto citrus spices such as dried lemon zest & dried orange zest

I've used them for years and the products work in my recipes. I don't get any money for saying that. I just remember having to fiqure out how to have more zest available when I needed. Hope I didnt offend.

Here's what I do...

This is what I do when freezing zest: When I squeeze an orange, lemon or lime I freeze the rind uncut. When I'm ready for the grated zest, I grate it just before it thaws completely. This way the zest has a "fresh grated" flavor. This works especially well with limes.

I also freez my zest but, I vacuum pack it.
I just juiced about 50 lemons and key limes. Ended up with 3 ice cube trays of each plus a 6 muffin tin of the lemon juice.
