What is orange or lemon zest?

Lemon or Orange Zest

Helpful cooking tips: When a recipe calls for a fruit zest - usually lemon or orange, just grate the out peel off of the fruit. Not the white pith underneath though. You can also use a potato peeler.

Fresh zest makes recipes so much tastier. I like to use a kitchen rasp for grating zest. It creates a finer zest and is easier on the fingers.
