Household Hint: Save the rind. Don’t discard the rind of lemons, grapefruit or oranges. It makes excellent flavorings for cakes, frostings and such. Wash it well and grate, being careful not to include the bitter white part under the rind. Put in a tightly covered glass jar and store in refrigerator.
