Spiraliser

What can you spiralize?

The guidelines.

No, you can’t spiralise chocolate – or chorizo. Trust me, we’ve tried. There are a few simple rules to determine whether or not a vegetable or fruit can be spiralised or not.

  1. The vegetable cannot be hollow, seeded or have a tough core.
  2. The vegetable must be at least 4cm in diameter for best experience.
  3. The vegetable should be at least 5cm long for best experience.
  4. The vegetable must have a firm, solid flesh (no squishy, juicy fruits or veggies.)
