The Citrus Curl

What is it? A citrus curl can be made using a lemon or orange, and adds so much beauty to a simple dish.

How do I make one? Taking a whole orange or lemon in your hand, cut around it in a continuous motion down the length of the fruit. You want to make one cut all the way around. Make the space between the rings you cut about 1/4 of an inch thick. Think of it as drawing the shape of a spring around the fruit.

When do I use orange and lemon rings? These garnishes are perfect for anything to which you’d add a derivative of orange or lemon! If you make a drink with orange or lemon ingredients, add this garnish to the top of your glass. These rings are also great added to dinner dishes, salads, and dessert plates!
