The zest should also dry really well. Put on paper towel and let dry on your counter. The put in airtight container (an old spice bottle).
Pulsate the zest with kosher salt... bam, lemon salt.

yes, but not for long. It loses it's "oomph" in a couple of months, so use it soon and make more!

Right, that is why I think it is best to dry it. It's not wrapped in the moisture of the water while frozen. When dried out it should keep just as long, if not longer. And it will reconstitute with just the slightest hint of dampness.

It will not be the same when you thaw it as it was before you froze it but it is OK if you intend to use in in something you are going to cook, such as cakes.

That is exactly what I do too. Works very well.
