Subject: twist of lemon rind
I'd like to serve an expresso with a twist of lemon rind, priily
because I want to break up the visual effect of bone white china.
I can use a peeler to get the rind, but how do I get the rind to
twist? - Mike

You would enjoy it more if you served it with an espresso.

Oh thank you, thank you.
I know it's raining today, but would you please follow me around all
day and correct my spelling? - Mike

It's not quite the Spelling Police when you misspell the priy term
involved in the conversation.

Not so much a spelling correction as you probably thought the spelling
was correct. Espresso is likely to be more drinkable if ordered from
somewhere where it is actually spelt correctly :)

..assuming you're scraping the rind in a vertical, (top
to bottom) fashion - and that's why it's straight, or
at the best, with only a slight curvature...

Try scraping the rind, as you call it, in a horizontal
fashion - as in those continual apple-peeling machines
that appear from time to time in household exhibitions
and departments.

A laterally thin scraping in one continuous peel around
the lemon should give you the curling twist that you want.
A slight if regular wobble whilst doing so should also be
able to produce a zig-zag twist. It's also possible to
re-form the twist around a pencil, (for a tight twist),
as around a jar or somesuch for the larger radius twist.

Additionally, the 'downward' direction of the lateral spiral
of the twist should give either left or right handed twists
according to direction..

I'm not too clear as to the precise method of acquiring a
vertical, or even a 'Leaning Pisa' twist, but I would take
some care as you may put the lumbar region of your spine
into some difficulty as you investigate the strange strips
that you will soon be producing. ;'))

However, I would also be careful in case you become,
accidentally, quite twisted in your view of a speciality
coffee ..unless, of course, you're in Seattle or elsewhere
suchlike posh, such as the Dorchester, Waldorf, Ritz et al!

Twist it. :)

Hold one end and roll the other end between the finger
and thumb of your other hand. You have to roll it quite
tightly so that when you release it, the twist remains.
But not so tightly you break it.

I suggest going to the local pub where the bartender
will happily demonstrate how over several tinis.
