When it’s still 90 degrees in October, it can be hard to get into the fall spirit. Instead of fighting summer’s persistence, embrace it with a pumpkin spice latte on ice and a weather-appropriate Jack-O-Lantern made from a pineapple. Tips for success:
– Pick a pineapple with some girth so there’s enough flat surface area to carve.
– Cut off the top symmetrically and carve out the fruit in one big cylindrical chunk. (Bonus: No yucky pumpkin pulp!)
– Ditch the usual flimsy carving tools — you’ll need a knife.
– Keep facial features simple and be careful the rind doesn’t collapse.
