    I used the zest of four small oranges and the orange flavour is fantastic! Lovely custard recipe too. Will definitely make again

    The recipe for the custard is great, but how much orange zest is a strip? This should be clearer - I used the zest of a medium sized orange, and the orange flavor is pretty subtle. Should I have used more?
