Vegetable and fruit carving is a real art. The next time you invite guests, surprise them with an unusual presentation. You do not have to start with chic shapes. Just turn an apple into a swan with this simple instruction.
What is required
- an Apple;
- sharp clean knife;
- table knives.
Wash the apples and dry them. Use a sharp knife to cut the apple in the middle. However, not horizontally or vertically, but diagonally. Remove the seeds, leaving them for decoration.
Place the bulk on the cutting board, cut down and place two dining knives on the sides.
Use a knife to cut an apple slice near the center. Table knives will focus. Repeat on the other side.
Place the resulting slices between the knives and cut a smaller slice. Repeat the process twice to get 4 parts of different sizes. Arrange them inside each other. It will be the wing of a swan.
Cut a small piece out of the "body" to insert the head.
Use the smaller half of the apple. Place it between the knives, cut into thin plates.
To make a head on a larger circle, remove the excess part as shown in the picture above. Make the eyes out of the seeds. Position the head in the hole cut in the "body". All is ready. Sprinkle the result with lemon juice so that the apple does not darken.
