Lemon Rind and Pith

When grating a Lemon ensure that you only lightly grate the peel (zest) which is the yellow bright colour of the citrus fruit. Do not grate down to the inner white layer which is called the PITH as this has a bitter taste and will affect the taste of your bake.

The above picture shows how far into the fruit you should grate to, if the fruit appears white or you have grated to the flesh of the fruit then you have grated too much. If you grate finely and constantly rotate the fruit you will be less likely to hit the pith.
