Special Equipment Needed

How to Grate Citrus Peel

Always wash and dry citrus fruit before grating. Move the whole fruit up and down on the side of the grater with the smallest holes to remove ONLY the surface of the fruit peel. (The inner white part is bitter.) Continue to grate the fruit until you have the desired amount of grated peel, rotating the fruit on the grater as necessary. Use a pastry brush or old clean toothbrush to aid in cleaning grater.

Special Extra

For easy cleanup, line baking pan with foil using this easy method.  Turn pan upside down and fit a piece of foil over top of pan, smoothing corners as needed.  Remove foil.  When you turn the pan over, the foil fits perfectly inside the pan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I liked these bars although they could have done better with a little more lemon. I liked these bars although they could have done better with a little more lemon. I changed the receipe a little I used 6 whole graham crackers and added a couple of tablepoons of cocoa powder, to the crumbs & butter. I would also recommend greasing the pan before placing the crumbs in.
