There is no Halloween activity more fun than carving out pumpkins. That is, until we carved out pineapples! My favorite fruit has been and always will be pineapple, so why not bring a taste of the tropics to the Fall season? Pumpkins make for great jack-o'-lanterns, but pineapples make for a great spin on the Halloween tradition. Impress your guests and surprise your trick-or-treaters with this spooky fruit. If you're looking to try something new, follow this step-by-step tutorial for carving out a pineapple.
