Get a jump start on your pumpkin carving skills with this sweet little apple drink using nature’s own container.
Go From This ——————–> to This!
You’ll need a sharp knife & a spoon to scoop out the apple. That’s it! But, if you have any other pumpkin carving tools, you might give them a try. (The first tool shown above is an avocado scoop with a curved tip).
If your apple doesn’t sit level, give the bottom a clean cut, being careful not to cut a hole all the way through. Once the apple is stable on its bottom, begin carving about a quarter size circle around the top of the stem. If you start with too wide a circle, you may end up poking through the sides, making holes in your container. Starting small allows for some mistakes that can be corrected as you go.
Once the apple circle is as wide as you like, begin to scoop it out with a spoon. Be careful not to dig too deep! Now your container is ready to fill with either chilled or warmed cider as we transition from summer’s warm days into autumn’s cooler ones.
Add a cinnamon stick straw & sip!
