HOW TO CARVE AN APPLE INTO AN EDIBLE SWAN:
Prep time: 5-10 minutes
Author: Curry for the Soul
Recipe type: Fruit & vegetable carvings
1 fresh apple
1 sharp kitchen knife
2 butter knives
Lime juice for sprinkling on apple to prevent browning
Place a fresh apple on the cutting board
Cut off 1/3rd of the apple
Remove the seeds and retain them for using later as Swan's eyes
Place half the apple between 2 butter-knives to stop from cutting too deep
Cut a wedge about the size of a quarter of the apple about 1/2" from the centre
Cut a smaller wedge out of the one you just cut leaving about a quarter of an inch of the first wedge
You need 3 wedges. If the apple is large, you can cut more wedges
Continue the same process for the other side of the apple to create wings
For the head, cut in front of the body and remove the piece to make a slot.
Now assemble the wedges to create wings
Take the other half of the apple. 3 cuts are needed, one 'v'cut to create the beak and the last cut to create the height of the neck
Fix the apple seed where you visualise the eyes of the Swan
Now insert the neck in the slot as shown in the picture
Done. Beautiful centrepiece is created for your party dinner table.
