Make lemon zest with or without a zesting tool

Making lemon zest isn't hard and doesn't take a long time, especially if you have a lemon zester. A zesting tool is the number one preferred way to get that lemon zest with no mess and no fuss. So, in the first video tutorial, see how to make lemon zest with a zester. Use a zesting tool for the peeling, and make sure to wash the outside of the lemon thoroughly to remove dirt and residue. Then zest away!

But if you don't have a lemon zesting tool, there is an alternate way to make lemon zest. The second video shows you a unique and easy way to make fruit zest using only a knife and a spoon, without fear of getting unwanted bitter white pulp. Fruit zest, such as lemon, orange, and lime, can open up an entirely new dimension to even the beginning cook, from garnishes to highlight flavors that will astonish even the most sophisticated palate.

Check out both of these helpful ways to get fruit zest!
