To zest or not to zest, that is the question. I love my zester! Don't have a zester or microplane? Don't fret!
Use a vegetable peeler and a knife to get the same effect. Using a vegetable peeler, gently peel off only the colored part of your desired citrus into strips.
Next, use a knife to dice the citrus strips, finely. They won't last long in the refrigerator, but will keep in the freezer in a plastic bag with a pinch of salt or sugar, depending on your type of recipe.
