How To Make Buttermilk Carrot Cupcakes

Grating carrots are a simple task that may be completed with a box grater. Use a vegetable peeler to scrape them first, then run them over the large holes to create the amount needed in order to prepare the recipe. For additional details on the subject, look to The Basics: How To Grate Carrots. That same vegetable peeler may be used to create this effortless garnish. Look to The Basics: Carrot Curls for detailed instruction & visuals that illustrate the procedure.
