I also got zest from this one little lemon. I haven't been able to get zest that's not coated for years. This will be great to add to something!
It's wonderful that you have your own lemons - even if the tree does produce a lot of lemons. I know that you share with the neighborhood, which I'm sure that they appreciate.
I know that we used to share our tree fruits and other produce, and in L.A. would enjoy bags of figs, avocadoes, lemons, and so forth from my aunt, friends, and neighbors. That's how I made up a recipe for fig pie, which turned out well. I also made up a raisin pie once. Abundance spawns some tasty foods!
