Tulips




Select medium size oval potatoes or turnips (turnips preferable)

Peel

Leaving a smooth surface, and cut 4 petals

With a potato baller or other gadget, scoop out center very carefully

Tint, and place several green toothpicks in center of each, with currants or raisins on points of toothpicks

These tulips are very attractive when arranged in an oblong container as a centerpiece for table or platter.
