After watching hummingbirds in our yard, this prompted me to create a garnish of these beautiful little birds using fruits and vegetables. Be sure to see more of my easy unique Garnishes

Recipe Type: Garnishes, chili pepper, strawberries, celery

Total Time: 15 min   Prep Time: 15 min  Yield: 1 garnish


Ingredients:

1 Serrano Chili Pepper
2 Celery leaves
2 strawberries with hulls

Instruction:

Purchase Serrano chili peppers with long stems slightly off center to resemble a hummingbird beak and body. Cut two small lengthwise slits on the top side of the pepper about 3/4-inch from the stem end then insert celery leaves for the wings.

Make a strawberry flower and set on a serving plate. Take the remaining strawberry and cut the top straight across including some flesh of the strawberry, place hull side down next to the flower you just made; put the pepper on the cut strawberry top (see my photograph), stick the Serrano stem into the strawberry flower to resemble a hummingbird that is feeding.
