We have made these preserved lemons as christmas gifts this year http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/j...ipe/index.html
Kristy, wife to Josh proud mama to Katie: since 3/08 and Emma since 8/12.
Measure it out and freeze in ice cube trays with either it's own juice or water (also measured). Usually 1 tsp zest w/ 1 Tbs juice.
If you want to store it in the fridge for a little while, grate it into oil. Don;t store it without some carrier though, it dries out really easily.
ETA - Oh, and zest THEN juice. Juicing then zesting does not work well.

I have frozen the zest in glass airtight containers for future use and they smelled and looked great and the recipes turned out the same.
I get Meyer lemons from two people. One does an excellent job of caring for the tree and growing them. The other does an excellent job using them and sharing her ideas. The second friend taught me to make a lemon syrup and said I can leave it in the fridge in glass containers for up to a year.

Zest can be dehydrated and will last a LONG time.
