The zest of a lemon ??

Sorry, I posted this in the wrong place.I know this is a dumb question but could somebody please tell me what the zest of a lemon is? Thank you


  • its the skin that has been grated. you can use lime zest, lemon zest, any citrus fruit. its a great way to add a kick of flavor or to garnish

  • Priceless OnePriceless One Raw Newbie

    Make sure you just use the color part. The white is bitter.

  • you can buy a little gadget called a zester that makes it pretty easy. I just got one at lunch and paid $5 for it.
