Necessary to remove the was from fruit before using zest in a potstill

Recommended Posts

If you're using this in a gin I can't imagine you are using a lot of it as it's not a main ingredient.  Just wash them off in soapy water and use a soft brush and the wax will come off.

Don't know if you thought about it or not but you can purchase dried zest (constant weight) and use that as well which is what a lot of people actually prefer.

I have looked at dried zest, but as of yet not found any that has just the zest and not the pith.

I am using a LOT of zest, this is a "flavoured gn" that is popular in the UK.

I have come to the conclusion that washing in soapy water will be the best option.

thanks for replying.
