Okay, bear with us here. We are not normally ones for massive self-promotion, or even really microscopically small-scale self-promotion. But when we read today’s Stew post on citrus yields for zesting and juicing, our eyebrow raised. Because back in the old day, we wrote a blog post about citrus zest, specifically the epic mathematical difficulties in species-to-species conversion of the measurement thereof, and to this day it remains singularly the most popular URL we have ever contributed to the internet.
And while we are pleased as punch to see that Eleanor Klivans, author of The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook, has seen fit to include lemons, limes, and oranges in her breakdown, we are also pleased (as champagne punch, perhaps? Doing one of those waterfall things?) to see that she left grapefruits off the list, thus keeping our post a useful tool for home cooks and math nerds alike.
