Modern Tiki: How to Carve a Pineapple for Halloween

Carving a Pineapple For Halloween

Every year, I carve a few pumpkins for Halloween. While I enjoyed it as a kid, I think that I have even more fun with the carvings now that I’m an adult – probably because I now see pumpkin-carving as an art in and of itself, while as a kid I only saw it as one more obstacle between myself and going trick-or-treating. Since I’ve been celebrating the release of my newest cookbook, Tiki Drinks: Tropical Cocktails for the Modern Bar this year, I decided to break from tradition and carved a Pineapple Jack O’Lantern instead of a pumpkin. You can read all about it and see a whole gallery of step-by-step photos over at my tropical cocktail blog, Modern Tiki.

Pineapples, it turns out, are easier to carve than pumpkins because they are very tender and are relatively thin-skinned. Unlike pumpkins, you can hollow them out in just a few seconds by using a pineapple corer. Once you’ve hollowed out your pineapple, use the leftover fruit to make one of these delicious pineapple desserts!
