How to Make Attractive Chilean Citrus Garnishes

 

Fluted Cartwheel Slices:

Use a citrus zester. Hold the stem and blossom ends of the unpeeled fruit between your thumb and middle finger. Pull the zester through the peel from end to end, leaving about 1/4 to 1/2 inch between each cut. Cut cartwheel slices of desired thickness. If you don't have a citrus tool, use kitchen shears or a knife to cut notches around the peel of each cartwheel slice.

 

 

 

Cartwheel Twists:

Make one cut from the center of an unpeeled cartwheel slice through the outer peel. Twist the ends in opposite directions, standing the cartwheel gently. Use plain or decorate with parsley or watercress.

 

 

Zesting Chilean Citrus:

 

Lemon zest is the yellow outer peel of the lemon, which provides an aromatic flavor that enhances the flavor of many foods. The white part of the peel beneath the zest is the pith, which has a bitter taste. When removing the zest from a lemon, care should be taken to not remove the white pith along with it. The zest can be removed as thick or thin strips, very thin strands or grated pieces.

 

Wash lemons thoroughly before beginning preparation.

Lemon zest strips can be made by using the tip of a small knife and cutting vertical strips off the lemon.

Be careful not to cut into the bitter pith layer when cutting strips of zest from the lemon. If you do get some of the pith layer, use the tip of the knife to cut or scrape the pith from the zest strip.

The strips can then be used as is or they can be trimmed to thinner strips, depending on the intended use.

To julienne, cut the strips lengthwise into the desired thickness.

You can also use oranges to get a different color zest strips.
