Storing citrus zest: freeze or dry? (and for how long?)

Michelly | Nov 17, 2011 09:05 AM

I have a lime tree and a lemon tree. Periodically, I will get a pretty large number of either fruit, so it's pies, ades, cakes, and..ahem..margaritas. I also give many away.
But that's the juice (which I know can be frozen). What about the zest? Should I freeze it or dry it, and for how long?
