COOKING AND HEALTH TIPS: Zesty Rind – Before you squeeze juice from a lemon, grate off the rind into a freezer bag and freeze. When a recipe calls for lemon zest or rind, just pull it from the freezer. Sprinkle a little sugar over citrus zest or fresh ginger before chopping. The sugar not only dissolves and absorbs the juices but also helps spread the flavor.
