Pumpkin Carving Tips!
• Line a sturdy table with flat-
tened grocery bags or newspa-
per. Have a permanent marker,
carving tools, and 3 bowls
nearby.
• After you’ve determined the
best side of your pumpkin for a
face, use the permanent marker
to sketch out your design.
• Outline a circular lid around
the pumpkin stem, about 5 to 6
inches in diameter. Add a notch
in the back if you like — this
makes it easier to line up.
• With a slim pumpkin carving knife (the carving tool with a toothed blade like a
mini-saw), cut along the outline of your pumpkin lid. Make sure you slice through
the pumpkin at a 45-degree inward angle, so you’ll be able to replace the lid without
it falling in.
• The seeds are all attached to the pumpkin and each other by thin strings. Grab
the big bunches of seeds with your hands and place them in one of the bowls to be
cleaned later.
• Using the scraper that came with your kit (or a metal spoon if you don’t have this
tool), clean out the inside of the pumpkin until no stringy bits remain. Discard the
pumpkin guts in the second bowl.
• Use a cloth to wipe off and dry the outside of the pumpkin so that it will be easier
and safer to carve.
• Make straight cuts into your pumpkin along the lines of your design, removing the
pieces and discarding them in the third bowl.
• Go back in and scrape out any stringy pieces or jagged lines with the wire tool
from your carving kit. You can also scrape off the marker lines while you’re at it,
though they won’t be visible in the darkness of night.
• Many people use tea light candles in the bottom of their pumpkins. A safe alter-
native is to use battery operated candles - either tea light size or votive size. Once
the candle is in place and turn it on. Then place the lid on top. If you’re using a real
candle light it by using a long match or lighter, inserted through the Jack O’Lantern
mouth, to light the candle.
• Make roasted pumpkin seeds from the ones removed earlier. Clean and dry the
pumpkin seeds, then toss with oil, salt, and any desired seasonings, and roast in a
low oven until golden brown. Make them sweet with cinnamon or savory or spicy –
cumin, coriander, garlic and oregano – the combinations are up to you! They make a
great snack.
