I made this edible bouquet for a friend’s birthday recently using radishes and carrots and jalapenos on kebab skewers and it came out cute, so I wanted to share it with you! I am flying to NYC tomorrow, so follow me on Instagram + Twitter for my foodie adventures in the city! @theforestfeast…Bon appetit!
EDIBLE BOUQUET DIY
items to include: radishes, strawberries, jalapeno peppers, scallions, carrots, tomatillos, long leaves of dinosaur kale, long sprigs of rosemary, flowers
- Start by laying a piece of square newsprint, wrapping paper, or piece of fabric on the table. Place it so that looking down, it looks like a diamond, with one corner at the top. Fold that corner down part way so that you have a straight edge along the top.
- Start to place the items on top of the paper/fabric. Using long kebab sticks, attach items like radishes, jalapenos and tomatillos. Lay those down alongside other long vegetables and herbs.
- Add flowers if you like!
- Wrap the paper around your bouquet. You can leave the bottom open, or fold that corner up to enclose. I liked my carrot fronts sticking out!
- Tie with ribbon or twine and give it away!
