To zest a lemon, thoroughly wash and dry the fruit. Take the zester – you can also use a vegetable peeler or a cheese grater – and firmly, but gently press the sharp edge across the lemon. Be sure you’re only shaving the zest (the thin skin of the fruit) and avoid the white “pith” underneath, as this will leave a bitter taste in your recipes.
