Now let’s move on to the apple. We’re going
to slice it like so. Then we’ll dice this, same size as the onion.
You want everything to be pretty much uniform. Now if you cut your apples in advance, you may
want to soak the dice in lemon water. That will keep the apples from turning brown. However,
we will be cooking this right away, so no need for that, but you can already see that
it’s changing color, just like so. We have our onions, apples, celery. Again,
we want the size to be the same, everything uniform. Now let’s go to the carrot. So peel it. Again,
again, keep the size about the same. It’s good for color, presentation, and you also
want these small pieces because we’ll be rolling this all through a piping bag. So you don’t
want any big chunks. Otherwise, it will clog up the pastry bag.
