  • The next time you come across a basket of fruit, don't just eat it. Have some fun with

  • it first. In this project, we're converting any ordinary apple, into a decorative, and

  • completely edible, apple swan.

  • Go find your basket of fruit, and pick out an apple you think looks good. Now, using

  • a sharp cutting knife, carefully cut the apple at a slight diagonal, so that it slices right

  • through the center, of the apple core. While we're here, let's save 2 of the seeds, because

  • we'll be needing them later. Now that we've got our two halves, let's take the side that

  • still has the bottom attached, and place it face down on a cutting board. We'll need to

  • place 2 butter knives perpendicular with the top and bottom of the apple. Now we can carefully

  • cut down along one side of the apple core until the knife bottoms out on our makeshift

  • spacers. Then use the spacers as a guide to gently cut in from the side. When the two

  • cuts meet, you'll have an apple wedge that pops right out. And while we're here, let's

  • cut a piece from the other side the same way. Now our goal with these, is to cut out 3 more

  • "L" shaped wedges, about 1/4 inch thick. And this time, rather than cutting in sideways

  • toward your fingers, try turning the piece over so you can cut downward, and meet the

  • first cut at the bottom. Now with a little wiggle, a new apple wedge should break free.

  • If you repeat the process 2 more times, then stagger the pieces back together, the effect,

  • is a beautifully layered wing. Now, just cut the other piece the same way, and your swans

  • body should look like this. To make a place for the head, all we need to do is carefully

  • cut into the front of the body, and gently lift the pieces out, to reveal a clean, and

  • fairly deep groove. At this point, we can go ahead and grab the other half of the apple,

  • and place it between the butter knives like before. But this time, we're just going to

  • use them as spacers, to cut an even slice off the bottom. You can see that repeating

  • this process 3 or 4 times, gives us a nice variety of shapes and sizes. Now look for

  • a piece that resembles a heart that's been slightly flattened on top. All it takes to

  • form the swan head is three strategic cuts with a knife. I made one angled cut to form

  • the head, a horizontal cut to form the neck, and one slanted cut at the bottom for the

  • base. Now you should be able to see how this is coming together, and to clean it up a bit,

  • just use your knife to round off the sharp edges. All that's left now is to place the

  • apple seeds where you think the eyes should go, then use the side of a butter knife to

  • press them firmly into position. When both eyes look good, simply drop the neck into

  • place, and you're done. You've just created a beautiful and decorative, apple swan. I

  • spritzed mine with a bit of lemon juice to help prevent it from turning brown, then put

  • it on display to show off, for our dinner guests later that night. If you try using

  • different apples, you'll get a nice contrast of colors, and every bird will look a little

  • bit different. Well now you know how to take any ordinary apple, and turn it into a decorative

  • and edible, apple swan. If you liked this project, perhaps you'll like some of my others.
