My mom just called and asked if I knew of a good substitution for orange zest for a new recipe she's cooking. Now, mind you, if it was 1/2 tsp., I'd use lemon zest and a drop of orange essence.
However, this baking recipe calls for 1/2 cup! Whoa!
I told her if anyone knew the answer, the foodies here would!
Any suggestions? (PS - not the dry zest - tastes too much like tea)
Also, besides the fine grater, is there another way to zest an orange? After all, 1/2 cup is a lot of grating!
