Lemon Garnish - Simple To Make

Lemon garnishes are so simple to make, I like to put them in a glass of water or iced tea glasses or on the rim of mixed drinks, or serve on a plate with fish or seafood. They are so fresh looking and make an attractive addition to wherever you want to use them, there are many uses.

Yield: 1


lemons or you can substitute oranges, limes or grapefruit


Slice a lemon crosswise into one half inch slices. Cut one of the slices in half. Set aside the other half slice as well as all the whole slices.

Working with the cut half slice, use a sharp paring knife and carefully cut most of the peel from the lemon slice leaving approximately one inch of peel still attached at one end to the lemon slice (see my photograph).

With the peel partially cut away on one end from the lemon slice but still attached at other end, carefully tuck the attached lemon peel strip under to form a loop. (see my photograph).

Serve with most any course such as fish or put on individual lunch plates.
