A Smarter Way To Carve A Jack O’Lantern

A Smarter Way To Carve A Jack O’Lanternimage preview

Instead of cutting the stem out of the top of your pumpkin, or cutting a hole at the bottom, cut a circular hole at the back (save the piece). Make it large enough so you can clean out and carve your design, then simply insert a candle or solar light through the hole (replace the piece with a toothpick). Removing the top cuts off nutrients to the fruit until it’s all dried out, and cutting the bottom can make a mess because pumpkins give off a lot of water once cut.
