cucumbers, wrapped

It was a busy morning. A school day in August! I had lots of cucumbers. I had lots of carrots. I had a new carrot peeler, so I peeled the carrot and sliced the cucumber and married the two. It would make a great diy snack for kids. My kids were so keen on doing it themselves that they took them apart and re-wrapped them.

Peel the carrot so the peel is thick and ribbony.

Gently, wrap the carrot ribbons around the cucumber skin, using a small amount of water to make the end of the peel adhere to the already-wrapped peel.
