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.
For best results, use kitchen shears to trim edges of waxed paper to make even with sides of pan before filling with batter and baking cake as directed.
