It’s lemon season. 

Let’s make a new spring twist on brownies.

The harvest is grand this year so take advantage of freshly squeezed lemons.

The zest of a lemon peel gives a tart taste to the sweetness of your recipes.

It’s a simple recipe that kids will love making. 

Teaching kids about zesting. Zest is the grated rind of a lemon or orange.

Hint: When zesting your lemon peel, only zest the yellow part, not the white part. The white part has a bitter taste.
