I made citrus sugar a while ago (basically chopped up lemon rinds in a canning jar with sugar) and have now decided to remove the lemon before giving the sugar away.

So far I have tried wrapping the mixture in 2 layers of cheese cloth and scraping/sifting the sugar out from the bundle but this takes a long time and the cheese cloth develops holes that the rind also goes through.

Is there an easier way to accomplish this?

Assuming the rind chunks are fairly large, you could use a colander with fairly large holes or a metal sieve.
