Recently I was invited to hold a cooking class, where we were preparing the lemon cake. Recipe I will share in the very near future. For the cake we needed a lemon peel. It turned out that Most rubbed rind wrong.

Some were told that lemon rubbed on a grater until it turns white. And someone generally dotiraet to the fetus. And it's a big mistake.

The white part of the lemon peel is very bitter, so it should not be used for desserts or cakes. White rind that remains of lemons, I use for cooking compote (leave a link at end of article).

By the way, to get rid of the bitterness of the peel, I use the popular method. Lemon freeze in the freezer and then cut into already. a good method, but completely "bitterness" will not be removed.

How to remove the zest correctly

I will show the example of a lemon, but this method is relevant for other citrus fruits (orange, lime, grapefruit).

For this fit any small grater. If you often have to remove the peel - Head of a special citrus grater with small holes.

Lemon lightly pressed against the grater and start rubbing. Rented only the upper yellow layer. White skins do not touch. Zest rubbed lightly, constantly turning the lemon.

What if there is no float

In such cases, I use a sharp knife or peeler. Carefully cut off the top layer, being careful not to touch the white peel. Then cut into pieces in a small straw.
