Since carving a pumpkin is easy, it has ruled as the main decoration item in Halloween for years. However, for the past few years, the attention is shifting toward pineapples. The tropical regions have an abundance of the fruit and the rough exterior gives it a spookier vibe in tone with the festivity. The fruit is easily available, cheaper and effortless to carve; moreover, you can utilize the scooped out pulp to make smoothie or piña colada.
So, if you want to give pumpkin carving a break, carve a pineapple jack-o’-lantern instead this year. The procedure is quite simple:
- Take a pineapple. Neither very raw nor very ripe. To remove the leafy crown, cut an inch below the leafy portion
- Using a pineapple corer hollow it and take out the pulp, leave a one cm thick layer to carve on
- Carefully cut out the ghoulish designs using a knife. Clear the insides, pat them dry with paper towels
- Put a candle inside it and place the leafy crown back on
