Don’t forget to hold on to your citrus peels after juicing, making lemonade etc.

Remove the peel from fruit, place into bowl and blitz at speed 10 until fine or at desired consistency.

I then pop it into a labelled zip lock bag and straight into the freezer. That way I never have to buy fruit specifically for the zest.

    Thanks for this, Peta! I’ve been following the standard chart for zesting (grating) lemon peel but it recommends speed 7 instead of 10. My zest comes out too coarse and unevenly sized. I’ll be trying speed 10 next! Do you let the peel dry for a little bit before popping in the thermie?

      I blitz immediately 🙂
