YOU'LL NEED: Carrot Paring Knife HOW TO GARNISH A CARROT: A simple but fun way to garnish a carrot. Cut 4 inch out of thicker part of the carrot. Peel the skin off. Cut half way through one side (square) of the carrot length wise. Cut out back side of that part to make it thinner. Do the same thing with other sides. Re scale an imaginary square and spin the angles and cut sides out of the middle section and repeat the above steps to make them thinner. If the carrot is big enough you can repeat the same steps for another set of petals. Cut around the remaining section to create the pistil of a flower.
