Christmas Countdown 21: Christmas Tree #5 - Good Enough to Eat

Video link - see below
Advent Blog : Day 5 - Good Enough to Eat . 
Ever over-eaten  at Christmas time?  But have you ever eaten your Christmas tree? Today, I'm featuring the "healthy"  option Christmas tree, created from fresh fruit or vegetables . As I read somewhere,  enjoy "sustainable cuisine" this Christmas - really?   I'm not sure that phrase will become part of my Christmas  vocabulary but I admit these trees do look fantastic  - yes, good enough to eat.

Using vegetables for your Christmas tree centrepiece may not be popular with your children or grandchildren, but who knows, these creative and enticing  food trees could start a new love affair with broccoli?

These little carrot trees pictured  at the top of this post are my favourites amongst the edible Christmas trees. Here's a video to show you how to make them. 

Of course, I understand that vegan offerings may not be a crowd pleaser in your household so I  found some other options....

And then of course, there's always the compromise tree - fruit and chocolate !
