Special Equipment Needed

Size Wise

Sweets can be part of a balanced diet but remember to keep tabs on portions.

Special Extra

Add a simple citrus fan garnish. Use sharp knife to cut additional orange or lime into thin slices. Stack 3 slices. Cut slit through slices to center. Twist slices from slits in opposite directions; twist 3 slices together to give fan effect. Use to garnish pies just before serving.

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.
