    - A Microplane grater is the easiest way to get fine zest.
    - For larger pieces of zest, you can use a vegetable peeler, a zester, or a channel knife.
    - The best lemons for juicing should have a thin skin; thick-skinned lemons are best for zesting, however.
    - Scrub lemons before zesting to remove any food-grade wax from skin.
    - You want only the coloered part of the skin for zest. That's where the flavor is. The white pith is bitter.
