Citrus salt and zest are not just for the gourmet cook! Did you know the peels are loaded with nutrients? It adds great flavors to salads, fish, and desserts! This method is a great way to use fruit before it spoils. The peels can be frozen and cut up later. The juice can be frozen and when recipes call for 2 Tablespoons of lemon juice you have it already measure out! This recipe will give any cook a nice Valentine's Day gift and it is quick, easy, and very inexpensive to make! This tutorial was inspired by the Valentine's Contest. Let's make some Confetti!
