Friday

Gobble Gobble, Fruit Centerpiece

   When googling for a great centerpiece for Thanksgiving. I came across the below fruit turkey. How cut is he? I am thinking I am going to make this for work on Black Friday, and then again for the chapter during exam week. He is just too cute not to make at least twice.

Ingredients
  • Bosc pear (head)
  • Melon (body)
  • Cheese (beak and tail feathers)
  • Red pepper (snood, feet and side feathers)
  • Raisins (eyes)
  • Grapes (tail feathers)
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Toothpicks
Instructions
  1. Stabilize the melon body by cutting a shallow slice off the rind to form a flat base. Using a section of bamboo skewer, attach a Bosc pear head to the melon, as shown.
  2. Cut a cheese triangle beak and red pepper snood. Attach both, along with raisin eyes, to the head with sections of toothpick.
  3. Cut red pepper feet and set them in place. For tail feathers, skewer cheese cubes and red grapes, then insert the skewers as shown. Pin pepper side feathers in place with toothpicks.
