    Jim Davis from Harris Teeter demonstrates how to zest grapefruit.

    Jim Davis: Hi! I'm Jim Davis for Harris Teeter. I'm going to show you now how to zest a grapefruit. Using a microplane grater we just push the grater down. If you use it upside down this way, you just get the yellow portion off the skin of the grapefruit and that's all you want. Remember everything that's underneath this yellow is very bitter. So we just want that little bit of yellow that's on the surface.

    This is a different microplane, but it's the same with a little bit bigger shred. Again, we're only taking the yellow off the very edge of the surface, the very top edge of the surface.

    That's how you zest a Grapefruit. Up next, how to cut a grapefruit.
