Before you squeeze juice from a lemon, grate off the rind into a freezer bag and freeze. Then when a recipe calls for lemon zest or rind, just pull it from the freezer.
I googled lemon zest just to find out whether was possible! I had a bag of lemons, not cheap!) and I wanted to juice them for lemonade. I was thinking of all that zest going to waste. I decided to google and find out if zest freezes. I'm glad i found this tip on this site! Thanks

Just spent 20 minutes trying to find out how to preserve this fresh lemon zest -- to no avail until you. Kudos. Gratzi.
