Mini Pumpkins: A quick little trick

  

I remember clearly thinking when I saw this in one of Ms. Stewart's magazines, "This can't be! What if it's a cruel joke?  What if it's a cash bar?"

It only had two items on the shopping list.  It only had one tool.  It only took five minutes.  But it was.  And it is this simple.

Materials:

Mini pumpkins
Tea Lite Candles

Tools:

Sharp paring knife

Instructions:

  • With the paring knife, carve a hole into the top of the mini pumpkin roughly the size of the tea lite candle.
  • Remove the top by it's stem.
  • Push the tea lite candle into the top of the pumpkin.  No need to carve out the inside as it holds the tea lite candle in place should you carve the hole too big.
  • Light.  Sorry about the fruitflies.

Margo,

Nancy loves your site. She is now motivated to make one of your soups today( lucky me) she is going to make some pumpkin tea lights for Thanksgiving also. Thinks your photography is very good also.
