What is your weapon of choice for zesting?
Currently I have three options, none of which I really like.
Box graters tend to make quick work of a lime however most of the precious zest is stuck to the spurs. Carrot (veggie) peelers can be too dull and are awkward to handle. I tend to get too much of the bitter layer when using this method. Small sharp knives are inherently dangerous since they are sharp as heck if you have a good quality one. If you have decent knife skills, this is a good way to slice off the thin layer of zest of lemons and oranges. I have yet to zest a lime with a knife.
Where’s the handy zester tool? Good question! Maybe Santa will read this and I’ll get one for Christmas…
