From zest to juice, this is how to squeeze the most out of your oranges

Oranges are such a versatile citrus, kind of like the nose-to-tail equivalent for fruit. Start with one orange and you can use the peel for its zest or as a cocktail garnish and the flesh for its juice or segments — or a combination of some or all of these.

But how best to take advantage of such a multitasker?

Excerpts

"the magic of a Microplane is that it turns anything into fine pieces that can disappear into a sauce, preventing you from biting into a huge piece of garlic, or ginger in a dressing."

"Whenever I get a random craving for garlic bread, I grate some garlic into softened butter and schmear it on toast.  If I have parsley, great. If I have cheese, that can be Microplaned too."

"If the only reason you buy a Microplane is to make garlic bread, I support you."

Excerpt

"It wasn’t until I graduated college and started eating healthier that I discovered the beauty of a good microplane.

I had a cheap zester and would use it occasionally, but to be honest, I couldn’t really taste the “zest” very much and it was hard to use. But all that changed when I got a microplane for my birthday. Wow! I was impressed."

#5 A zester is worth the space it takes up in the utensil drawer

“When life gives you lemons … zest them thoroughly and save it in the freezer,” Oliver once tweeted. “Never waste lemons, you guys!” The best way to get that zest, according to Oliver, is by using a fine grater (also known by its brand name, the Microplane). Unlike a box grater, writes Oliver, this handy gadget slices “instead of tearing or shredding, conserving the aroma and adding more flavor [to your food].” Use it to zest citrus fruit or to sprinkle Parmesan over pasta."
