How can I save lemon zest?

Fresh Lemon Zest

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

I was reading an article on weight reduction, that called from half a cup of fresh lemon juice and fresh lemon zest mixed into hot water first thing in the morning. Lemon and hot water promote peristalsis, contractions that speed elimination of fat-storing toxins. I wasnt sure what "fresh lemon zest" was or how to make it. Very glad this comment is here, thanks.
