Simple Capsicum Basket- Create n Carve ~Fruit and Vegetable.

Capsicum Basket  a simple yet elegant garnish.  A very easy method of carving a capsicum to form  a basket to hold a filling of rice, dips or chutneys .

1.To form a handel, from the top of the capsicum,cut two vertical parallel cuts approx 1 inch long  into the centre of the capsicum from each side of the stem.
2.Cut two horizontal semi circle cuts around the capsicum diameter on each side of it to join the two vertical cuts.
3. Remove these parts to form a handle.

4. With a spoon scrap out the inside of the capsicum to form a cavity.
5. Using a sharp knife cut out the white seeded part from the central stem part of the handle (Making sure you don't cut the handle off)
6. Cut zigzag "V" shapes around the basket rim to decorate it.
7. You may need to cut off a very thin slice from the bottom of the capsicum to make it sit evenly and flat on the plate.

8. Place capsicum basket on serving platter and fill with desired filling.
