How to Maximize Citrus Zest Flavor -- Sugar draws out the natural flavor of citrus, so when baking you should use it to your advantage, especially when it comes to zest. Measure out the amount of sugar your recipe calls for, then lay it out on a cutting board or flat surface. Zest your citrus right onto the sugar and, using your hands, rub the two together. The result? A very fragrant sugar and a noticeably tastier end product.

Beth Williams: Most of my recipies come from "The Culinary Arts Institute's" Encyclopedic Cookbook. Published in the late 40's or early 50's. It was my mother's. Scratch cooking at it best. :: sugar substitutes- haven't tried these but it's good to know, just in case!
