    I wouldn't have expected lemon zest to be that powerful. Did you grate it or use a parer, or what?
    I'm wondering how big the bits are!

    Hi. I finely grated the zest. The bits were really tiny! Eurgh, the aftertaste of the lemon is just horrid ... and how strange that it has given me a headache (I'm a bit of an old packhorse and am never ill). I must google!

    Oh great, it seems lemon is a natural headache reliever. So much for that then!

    You could add some water and a cut up potato, cook for 2-3 mins then take out the lumps of potato, may help, not sure but worth a try.
    Was the lemon an unwaxed one?

    Maybe you managed to grate the pith in as well?

    Ah, or indeed this. I always buy unwaxed lemons so forgot to think of this!
