The skin of a citrus fruit is often added to many dishes to give a bright, fruity, and acidic lift in flavor

 

The zest referes to the thin, outer layer of the skin, which contains flavorful citrus oil. 

 

The rind, on the other hand, is composed of the zest and a bit of the bitter white under layer, or pith. This is commonly added to compotes and stews or used to garnish beverages. 

 

The peel is the entire skin of the fruit and is mostly used when making marmalade or candied peel.
