    What a great idea! I’ve never even thought to make it though I use it every now and again. Always wondering, when I buy it, why is this so expensive?? Good one! Thanks!

  • I’ve not used zest many times, but with how easy it is to make I certainly would make my own to save money if I ever use a recipe that calls for it.

  • Not only is orange zest expensive, it can sometimes be heard to find. I never knew it was this easy to make my own. I will be doing that.

  • Susan — I didn’t know about orange zest. I think of zest as grating an orange or lemon to go in a recipe. I don’t even think I’ve seen orange zest in a store (of course Ii wasn’t looking). Learn something new every day!

    What a good idea, Susan. Why didn’t I think of that. Not least since it’s so easy to do. Chapeau!
