What is a lemon zest substitute?


Lemon zest in a recipe provides an added kick in flavor and overall tangy taste. If you do not have any lemon zest on hand, you can substitute with lemon extract or even lemon juice. 1 teaspoon of lemon zest can be substituted with either a 1/2 teaspoon of lemon extract or 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. The next time a recipe calls for lemon zest and you don't have it on hand, no worries, simply substitute and enjoy your dish.

Orange zest works very well.U cud also try lime zest for soming a little tangier.
due to the fact that the grocery stores are 65 miles away, I buy the dehydrated lemon zest in the spice shelves. It works great and fast and easy! I also use bottled lemon juice.
