How to zest a lemon without making a mess

If you've ever used the fine side of a box grater or a rasp to zest a lemon, you know that the zest sprays all over the place and makes quite a mess. This is how I avoid that mess. Rather than grating the zest onto the cutting board, I hold the zester upside-down and  scrape it along the lemon -- that way, the zest collects neatly on top of the rasp, instead of spraying onto your work surface.
