Radish Mice

Martha Stewart Living, April 2004

No one will mind finding these little creatures sniffing around the crudite platter -- and your kids won't mind eating them. To transform an ordinary radish into a mouse, all you need is a paring knife. First cut off the stem end, which will leave a small white circle for the nose. Then slice a bit off one side of the radish to give the mouse a flat, stable base. Cut a small wedge out of the removed slice to make ears. Using the tip of the knife, make a slit near the stem end, and insert the ears. Leave the root intact for the tail.

    I am pretty sure that the radishes would go dry when cut like this.
