EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

A microplane makes quick work of grating the lemon peel. Look for this handy gadget at cookware stores.

To freeze, arrange in a single layer on cookie sheets and freeze until firm. Then pop them into an airtight container and store in the freezer. To thaw, let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.
