Hello fellow foodies

This my first post. Was wondering if there is a way to keep lemon or orange zest.

Welcome, glad you found us. I have never kept lemon or orange zest but I have read that you can just put it in a zip lock bag and freeze it.

Don't let yesterday take up too much of today. Will

Been there. Done that. Works for a short period of time. A couple of months at the most. Better to freeze than to throw it out. Actually, in my case, throwing it out only means putting it into the compost bin. Still gets used.

Hi and welcome to DC! On storing lemon/orange zest, I simply put it in a small ziplog bag and freeze it. It will lose its flavour somewhat but do add a little more than the recipe calls for when using it.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating!
