Pumpkins aren’t the only ones that get to have all the Halloween carving fun. Create a unique, tropical Jack-o-Lantern this year by switching to pineapple! With Cambro headquartered in Surf City, USA, our temperatures during this time of year don’t quite feel like what most of the country (or even the northern hemisphere) considers Fall. A bright, warm-weather pineapple seemed like the perfect way for us to celebrate Halloween this year. Looking to switch it up? Here’s how to make your own:
- Lay the pineapple on its side and cut the top off.
- Core the pineapple with a corer. This process is much easier if you have a corer. If you don’t have one, carefully cut around the edge of the pineapple, leaving a quarter of an inch of flesh.
- Cut the center portion of the pineapple into long spears and remove them carefully. This was more difficult than it seemed. If you’re having trouble cutting the spears, cut the pineapple into smaller chunks and scoop out the softer parts at the bottom with a spoon. Drain juice as it accumulates. Keep the edible parts of the pineapple to snack on later. We suggest using a Camwear® round storage container to keep pineapple chunks fresh.
- Carve your pineapple. You can get as creative as you want! We wanted to keep the traditional Jack-o-Lantern look, but feel free to have fun with unique designs and faces.
