Consuming lemon zest
We give you the best way to consume lemon zest:
Wash the lemons well and keep them in freezer. You can grate the zest afterwards, when preparing salads, fish, meat or any other meal, even warm drinks, like tea.
In this way, your meals will provide you lots of vitamins and anticancerogenic elements that keep you healthy.
You can also grate fresh lemon zest in meals or tea, but the shelf life is longer when the lemon is frozen.
We recommended using organic lemons. Otherwise, wash the lemons carefully or soak them in water and vinegar for 10-15 minutes before usage, in order to remove all impurities and chemicals.
