what is orange zest?

Kat Mortensen said...

The finely grated rind of the orange.

Orange zest is the orange part of the peel of an orange. You can purchase orange zesters at department stores or places like Target, etc. Some zesters peel away the orange part in more of a stringy way; others merely finely grate the orange peel. Just don't get down to the white part (pith). It's bitter!

Yowza, that looks DELICIOUS! Will definitely be trying that this summer.

Orange zest is the colored part of the orange peel. You would use a microplaner to "zest" the orange, but you don't want to get the white part underneath since that is bitter.

Is it when you take an orange and run it along your grater to get the outside skin into little shredds. It has wonderful flavors and oils in it.

Christina said...

Orange zest is the outside of an orange you get when you run it along your graters. It has a great flavor and oils.

Orange zest it the outside of an orange. You take your orange and run it across your grader. It has a good smell and wonderful oils with flavor.

looks so yummy, I think I know what to do with the basket of peaches I picked up at the farmer's market :)

Is there a way to use cooked vanilla pudding instead of instant? All of the instant puddings I've seen have food dye, which my family avoids.

Can you use frozen or canned peaches?

Can you post an attachement or background to your recipe? It looks delicous, but I can't read it! Thanks!

Oh my goodness!!! This was soooo good!!! You didn't show a use for the powdered sugar, but I assumed it was to be used with the whipping cream to make the peaks. Thank you so much for sharing! it was a huge hit!!
