How To Make A Turtle Of Apple, Melon and Watermelon

>>  7/18/2013

I got lot of responses about the Melon turtle that I did for the Beach wedding.

Here is a tutorial how to make the turtle. I'll explain it in an apple. You can do the same in a melon, watermelon and in a pumpkin. 

How To Carve A Turtle Of Apple

You will need:
1 apple,
nectarine or other apple for its head and legs

thai knife

Step instruction:
1. Cut the apple in halves. We will make two cute turtles.
2. With thai knife carve 3 cells at the central line.
3. Add cells around. 
4. Carve small swirls in each cell.
5. Slice nectarine for legs and do a head. Place your turtle on a plate.

REMEMBER to treat your carving with lemon water to prevent it from browning!

Let's decorate the second turtle with small stars! You will need V-knife for it.

Step instruction:
Repeat steps 1-3 from the first instruction.
Carve stars in each cell with V-shape knife.

You are done! Again, you can do this turtle in melon and watermelon too. 

Do not forget to apply lemon juice to your carving when you work with apples. Read the article 'How To Carve Apples And Prevent Them From Browning' to safe carved apples for a long period of time.

If you get used to lemon juice use a special cirtus sprayer device. It's perfect to sprinkle lemon juice to salads and dishes.I use the citrus sprayer for a quick carving.
