This is so helpful! I love the taste of lemons in desserts and savory dishes, but I just hate zesting lemons. I'll have to try out these other methods!

This is a really informative tutorial. I personally find that the grater or the zester are the best methods. I have tried using a knife and a vegetable peeler in the past, but I had problems with getting too deep into the pith (where the peel turns white) and then having to trim it off because it's bitter. I also find that it's easier to incorporate the finer grated zest into recipes (unless you want larger ribbons for candying.)

This is a great video! Very informative. I don't use lemon zest that often, but these are all good skills to know for the kitchen.
