Welcome to the forum!

I only used to do this when relatives in FL would send boxes of oranges as gifts! We just put them in ziplocs, and that was it - nothing complicated. To get the zest off, I'd just grate it off frozen fruits, then let them thaw, and use as desired.

I have done that with lemons and limes. I didn't even bother with the bag, because I usually only do it with one or two at a time. Works a charm.

Yet another example of I learn something new every day here. My Meyer lemon tree is having a bumper crop, and I'll simply be freezing some of them whole from now on.

And I learned that you can zest the citrus while it's still frozen. Very useful info.

It does not appear edible once it returns to normal temperature.

They won't have the same texture, but they're perfectly edible.
