Random Post: Lemons Part 2: Ways to Peel Lemons

Peel is versatile, but wash fruit and consider organic. Here are a couple of ways to peel a lemon, whether it is for garnish, or cooking with.

Round holes yield long, thin strips of lemon rind, perfect for ­garnishing soups or desserts such as cheesecake or ice cream

Razor-sharp tiny blades yield finely grated bits that distribute lemon flavor throughout; good for baking or salad dressing


Channel Knife
U-shaped blade yields long, curling strips. These curls can be used for decoration on top of cupcakes, or cakes.
Whatever you do, don't throw away the lemon peel. Yes, I am completely guilty of doing this. I will take a lemon, cut it in half, get the juice out, and peel goes straight to the trash. Not anymore I won't. I will make sure I put those peels to good use and make sure I use the whole lemon.
