How To Make Carrot Curls

Carrots make a nutritionally sound addition to many cake & muffin batters as well as offer good texture when grated. However, their bright, vibrant color makes a beautifully simple garnish, too if cut differently. Carrot curls may be prepared in advance, then added to these confections just before serving. Once the strips are tightly rolled, secured & allowed to stand in ice cold water for a spell, lovely little ringlets emerge. Beyond baked goods, use them in salads & side dishes for a stunning presentation. Learn how to make carrot curls in your very own kitchen.

How To Make Carrot Curls 

Carrot curls are one of the easiest garnishes that can be made. Gather a cutting board, a damp towel, a vegetable peeler & prepare a small bowl of ice water. Expect approximately 8 garnishes from each medium-sized carrot.

Rinse the carrots under cool water. Place a damp towel under a cutting board to stabilize it. Using a vegetable peeler, scrape the outer surface until smooth, discarding the peel. Next, place the carrot over the board. Using the vegetable peeler, swipe it in one direction until large strips form. Tightly roll them & secure with a wooden pick. Place the rolled carrots in small bowl of ice water & refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours. To garnish cakes & cupcakes, simply remove the strips from the water, discard the wooden pick & place the carrot ringlets over surfaces.
