Cooking Christmas trees from fruits:
Step 1: Prepare the base.
Rinse the apple with a special brush. Cut a piece of fruit on one side to make a flat base. Cut the core so that the hole fits the size of your carrot. The apple will play the role of the foundation for our Christmas tree.
Step 2: Prepare the barrel.
Rinse the carrots and peel the skin. This will be our trunk.
Step 3: Prepare the Strawberries.Fold fresh strawberries in a colander and rinse under running water. Remove the green ponytails and leave it in a colander until the excess water drains.
Step 4: Prepare the melon.Clean the melon, first cut it in half and use a tablespoon to remove the seeds, and then divide each half into two more parts. Peel the quarters of the melon, peeling it off the pulp with a knife.
Use the cookie cutter to cut the stars out of the melon pulp.
Step 5: Prepare the grapes.
Rinse the grapes properly, it is best to soak it for a short while to get rid of all the small twigs and leaves. Pure grapes, like strawberries, leave to dry.
Step 6: Prepare BlueberriesRinse blueberries just like grapes and strawberries.
Step 7: Prepare the KiwiRinse the kiwi and gently peel it, cut it into thick circles, because the thin ones will most likely fall apart when you try to fix them on a Christmas tree.
Step 8: Collect the Christmas tree.
Apple - place the base on a large flat dish, it should be as stable as possible. Stick carrots into the cut core of the apple, it should be stable as well. Stick toothpicks into this design, the higher to the top of our Christmas tree, the toothpicks should be shorter, and place one of them on top.
Start with strawberries, stick them on toothpicks, starting at the base. Then fix the grapes, kiwi and stars from the melon, placing one of them on top of the Christmas tree. Lay out the remaining fruits at the base, and close the gaps in which the carrots are visible with blueberries. That's all, your wonderful Christmas fruit decoration is ready!
