While carving my pumpkin the other night, I was thinking about the great innovations that are now available for Jack O Lanterns that have evolved since I was young.
Now you can carve with a rounded end saw which is not only a lot safer than Mom’s carving knife, but works a lot better too! The saws can easily make a rounded cut, something I could never accomplish with a regular knife. Back in the day, I had to use a potato peeler to get all the rounded shapes, now I can saw them with ease.
The scooper which came with the saw is also a great innovation. It has a serrated edge on one side for scraping the inside of the pumpkin and teeth on the other for easily grabbing and removing the insides. Much easier that working with a regular spoon.
Finally, there is a variety of lights, eliminating the need for a candle. These include different battery operated candles and strobe lights that can change colors or imitate candle flicker.
If you haven’t gotten your pumpkin yet, you still have time; there’s still a good variety at the local stands.
