It's part of the lemon rind... you can buy a zester that will kind of peel/shred off the lemon rind for your recipes.. it's really yummy cooked into stuff!

Yes,you can scrape it on a food grater,or you can peel it with a veggie peeler and chop it up.

You just want the outside part not the white part,which is very bitter.

Yes, but only the yellow part. Stop when you get to the pith, which is the white part..it's bitter. Just scrape and turn. icon_smile.gif
