Getting the most from your citrus

One little tip – when you are going to juice any citrus for a dish, take the zest off it before you juice it.  I use a microplane to do this but any fine grater would do it.

I tap the zest out on to a sheet of baking paper and leave it for a few hours to dry (protecting it from pesky flies etc) and then pop it into little glass jars to use as a little pep in lots of dishes.  If it is properly dry the zest will keep for months.
