When I’m in the groove, there are a bunch of little kitchen tasks I do that make me feel like I’m operating at peak productivity. The tasks range from making sure all the dishes are clean by the time I’m finished cooking — clean as you go, right? — to this little tip about prepping lemons.
Before I juice a lemon, I always zest it and add it to my zest stash in the freezer. Whenever a recipe calls for zest (or if I just need something to wake up a ho-hum recipe), I pop the bag out of the freezer and take how much I need — no fresh lemon required.
