James Beard's Christmas Pudding question

Tom Meg | Dec 24, 2004 08:46 AM

This recipe calls for

"1/2 pound mixed peel (orange, lemon, and citron)", finely chopped


"the rinds of 1 orange and 1 lemon", grated

What exactly is the difference between a citrus fruit's "rind" and "peel"?

My dictionary defines peel as "the rind of a fruit". Not helpful!

Does he mean zest for one of these?
