HOW TO MAKE A TOMATO ROSE

This post is specialy for some people who asked me to post how to make a tomato rose specialy like my friends lubna, Food Fanatic and pooja this is for you friends. 1. Pick the right tomato for a layge tomato rose like that should be not only ripe but also hard,large and round and nice red in color.
2. to peel the tomato use a very sharp knife.


3. Now start peeling the tomato hold tomato in one hand top of the tomato should be in your plam.
4. Peel the skin of the tomato in to a spiral from the base of the tomato to the top.
5. The peel should come off in to one strip that is 1/2 inch to 1 inch wide.


6. Once you peel the tomato you have to cut the top in to a slice to use like a base for the rose (don't cut the flesh just slice the skin only.)
7. Now lay out the peel on a flat surface like cutting board.
8. Now start rolling the tomato peel, begin from where we started peeling the tomato that is top of the tomato, and roll the strip like a scroll, keep it tight.
9. Once you finish rolling set the rolled portion on the end pert that we peel a slice from the top of the tomato , place the roll on the circle end.
10. When you finish the roll it will expand and look like a rose.
11. now pick the rose up by the base in order to move it and place some mint leaves under the tomato rose for rose leaves .
THAT S IT.
