Cathy Isom has ideas about some great fruits you can use to make Halloween Jack O Lanterns. That’s coming up on This Land of Ours.
Sure, nothing screams Halloween more than the biggest, plumpest, perfectly carved pumpkin with a happy, sad or scary face. But there are also some other great and colorful fruits you can use for creating Jack O Lanterns, and yours may even be the hit of the neighborhood.
The pineapple does costs a little less than a pumpkin this time of year. When it’s lit, using either a battery-operated tea light or candle, the entire pineapple shell will glow in a cool pattern. Watermelons on the other hand will be a little more expensive this time of year. When choosing one, look for one that is flat on one side so your Jack O Lantern doesn’t roll over.
