Gluten Free Mama’s 5 Things to do with Lemon Zest

We use lemons in baking, cooking, adding to water and other drinks.  When we juice the lemon we are leaving behind a wonderful ingredient that is just usually discarded, the lemon zest.  Lemon zest is great used in baked good, adding to savory cooking, and you can also make butter, oil, candied zest and more.  Simply zest your lemon before juicing and you can use this delicious ingredient for future use.  Store in a ziploc container and freeze until ready to use.  Then you can happily juice all of your lemons.
