Hooray for Zest

4.00 (1 Votes)

Zest is the colored outer skin of citrus, and it's packed with flavor. You can remove the zest by using a sharp knife or vegetable peeler and scraping strips off a lemon, lime, or orange. You can also use a cheese grater to scrape off fine pieces of zest. There's even a kitchen gadget called a zester that's made especially for this purpose!

Zest is great for:

  • Livening up cold or hot beverages
  • Intensifying flavors in cooked and baked dishes
  • Garnishing with color and fresh flavor

Homemade Cheese Danish

When the Test Kitchen made this, everyone in the office went nuts over it. We were all blown away at how creamy and to-die-for this Danish is. The best part is how easy it is to make. So dont wait another second to try our Homemade Cheese Danish...its that good!
