So, what is lemon zest?

Lemon zest is the outermost layer of the lemon peel, which is grated or peeled off to add a burst of flavor to various dishes. It contains the essential oils of the lemon and has a bright, citrusy aroma and flavor that can be used to enhance both sweet and savory recipes. Lemon zest is a common ingredient in baking, as it adds a tangy and refreshing taste to cakes, cookies, and pies. It is also used in salad dressings, marinades, and sauces to provide a zesty, acidic kick. Lemon zest is a versatile and delicious addition to any recipe that needs a pop of citrus flavor.
