Orange zest kitchen tip
I thought I might add something to Tammy's Kitchen Tip Tuesday. If you haven't checked out her site Tammy's Recipes, do so soon. She has an extensive collection of recipes as well as other different tips and kitchen helps. Every Tuesday she puts out the call for kitchen tips and here is one from me-
I have been using a lot of orange zest lately. So, since oranges are in season and Devorah (my 9y0) happens to love oranges, every time I serve an orange I first wash it and then grate it skin off. I just use my grater with the smaller holes. It gets the zest off in nice skinny slivers and no zest. I then leave it sit out for a day or two to dry then put it away. I have a baby food jar full of zest right now waiting to be used!
