Test Kitchen Tips
- When zesting lime, remember this tip: The outermost part of a citrus fruit has the most desirable flavour. Be careful not to grate too far down into the peel. The lighter-coloured inner part of the peel, the pith, tastes bitter.
- To soften butter super-quick, partially unwrap the butter (use the wrapped half as a handle to keep your hand clean) and shred it using the largest holes of your box grater. The butter will reduce to a fluffy heap and soften faster.
- Shredded butter is ready to use in your recipe right away.
