Citrus rinds are packed with strong, aromatic oils and add a strong punch of citrus flavor to any dish. Lemon zests are often used to add a kick to pastries, sauces, salads and sweets.
Don’t have a zester? Use a grater, vegetable peeler or paring knife to cut the zest from the fruit rind.
Also known as icing sugar or confectioner’s sugar, powdered sugar is made by milling granulated sugar into a powder. You can actually make it at home by tossing regular sugar in a coffee grinder, or using a mortar and pestle.
