Best way to zest

There's a best way to zest?  Seriously?  Yes folks. There is.  Try holding your zester this way:

And draw it across the top of them lemon.  Not only will you be much less likely to zest your own fingers (and don't tell me THATs never happened) but you have more control, better visibility of what has and hasn't already been stripped from the peel, better yield and most importantly, an accurate measure of how much you've accumulated. Good luck figuring out how much is a tablespoon of zest when you've done it straight into a bowl. 

Next time you have a recipe that calls for a little lemon love, try it! You'll thank me.
