Peeler and a knife - Zester replacement
No zestzer available in the kitchen? A peeler and a knife do it too.
A zester is a practical little device that can be used to tear chips from citrus peel. These delicate strips of orange or lemon zest are delicious with many dishes, such as roast duck, to give a fruity, fresh note.
Well, not everyone has such a device at home - and honestly, it does not take that often. I've tried that with a peeler for vegetables and a sharp knife also succeeds well.
Thin strips are cut from the orange peel without whitening. These strips can be easily cut into narrow zests.
