Dried Zest.. Lime, Lemon, Orange, Tangerine, Grapefruit, etc. step by step
- I've always avoided recipes with calling for zest. as I never wanted to take the time to zest everytime I cooked. for several reasons.. 1. wasn't sure what it was.. and 2. once I found out I thought it to be to much work for everytime I wanted to bake something.. but if u have a nice bowl of it on hand.. it makes it so much easier. u can even combine different citric fruits for different flavor combinations..
- first u need to gather the things u need..
- u need.. a large plate, a grater (or zester if u have one)(I don't and have always used the smallest part of the grater) fruit of choice, lime, lemon, orange, tangerine, grapefruit, a clean new unused toothbrush(soft bristles).
- stand grater so its over the plate..
- place fruit in hand and gently scrape the fruit rind/peel over the smallest side of the grater..
- be sure u only get the colored portion of the rind as the white part tend to be bitter instead of flavorful..
- keep turning the fruit as u go to ensure u get all u can out of it..
- once the lime is pretty much bare, u have a littlee bit of zest on the plate and a lot still stuck on your grater. do not use your finger!.
- this is where the toothbrush comes in handy. gently pressing scrape off zest from grater onto plate. making u sure u scrape both sides to get the maximum out of it..
- tap grater onto plate to get anything else off and set aside..
- now u have a plate covered in zest..
- to dry it is very simple. spread it out as much as u can over entire plate. and let sit for a day..
- once dry place into airtight container..
- now u have dried zest on hand whenever u need it..
- I do all my fruits in one day. fill a small container so when I need it I don't waste valuable cooking time. :).
- today I did lime. the bigger the fruit the more zest u get..
- once done with your limes.. don't throw them out!.
- they still have many uses.. squeeze them and drain of their liquids! store in airtight container in fridge.. for the next time u make lime chicken quesadillas! (recipe is in my profile).
- also u can make candied lime slices.. recipe is also in my profile. :).
- enjoy! and have fun and be sure not grate your knuckles!.
