1.How to Make Carrot Flowers
Preparation of Carrot
Wash and peel the carrot. If you would like to make in advance, keep in slightly salty water in the refrigerator. It does not work for parsnips because parsnips change the structure in water. However, I recommend making carrot flowers before serve for the best appearance and of course, taste.
Technique Flower N1:
Place the peeled carrot inside the curler and rotate clockwise as sharpening a pencil. Keep your end of the ribbon on the surface, so it won’t brake. The ribbon comes out so thin and beautiful.
2. Roll the ribbon in shape of the flower and serve!
Technique Flower N2:
1. Make cuts with the crinkled or wavy blade of carrot curler like on the photo.
2. Continue like with technique N1. These flowers also are very beautiful!
Technique Flower or Curls N3:
To make interesting curls or simple other flowers, make the cut around the carrot half way like on the photo. The ribbon will be separate in 2 ribbons. I like to use this technique more for curls to add to salad than for flowers.
