Tomato Rose -Tutorial

As promised, here I am with Tomato Rose tutorial.

First start by choosing a tomato that is fresh and firm and sharp knife so it will be easy to carve.

1. start carving at the stem end of tomato as shown above in step 1.
2. continue carving as you would make circle but do not complete circle as shown above in step 2.
3. now peel the skin of tomato in spiral form as shown in step 3 to make a thin strip about 1/2 to 3/4 inch wide.
4. continue peeling the skin to make unbroken strip as shown in step 4.

5. continue peeling the skin till end as shown above in Step 5.
6. now you will have thin long strip and a base as shown in Step 6.
7. now roll the skin as shown in step 7, 8 and 9. Be careful not to tear the skin.

8. roll skin till you reach base circle as shown in step 10.
9. slide base circle under the roll as shown in Step 11.
10. Voila tomato rose is ready as in Step 12.

Note : Strip does not need to be cut very straight , little edges , curves would look good on rose. Rose can be use to garnish Salad, curry or just to add nice presentation to any dish.

If you do try, I would love to here from you....
