Making an orange garnish is one of the easiest ways to spice up your presentation, as well as a great way to use up an orange peel (which is usually just discarded). An orange garnish not only allows you to use up those orange peels but also impress your guests with your orange garnish skills!
The first steps in making an orange garnish is to begin peeling the orange (or lemon or lime or tomato-anything round with a skin will work). You will want to peel it as pictured, in a fairly thin strip.
After the peel is removed, you can begin to make your masterpiece orange garnish.
Now that you have your peel, just wrap it around and around until you have a tightly wrapped orange peel that will quickly become your orange garnish.
Now that your orange peel is tightly wrapped, you are just seconds away from having a beautiful orange garnish.
Once your orange garnish is tightly wrapped, all you have to do is set it down so that it sits flat (if it dosen’t look right or sit right, try just flipping it over) and step back and enjoy your creation. As I mentioned before, you can use this little trick with tomatoes, lemons, limes, grapefruits or even apples and turnips. Anything that is round with a skin. Once you learn how to do it with an orange garnish, you can try things more challenging . . . Like a turnip, a radish or even a grape (good luck with that).
The biggest step to making an orange garnish is practice. So now that you know how to make an orange garnish, go do it. . . Over and over until its orange garnish perfect!
