We've Got Shrunken Heads!

Only on Halloween would that title not make me run in fear! HA. Don't worry... they're just APPLES!:)


We are loving the Halloween season and have a fun idea for your festivities... whatever they may look like this year.


  • Peel a bunch of apples, leaving the stems intact. Granny Smith apples wrinkle the best, but any variety will do.

  • Carve faces on them using a small paring knife. (it's like carving pumpkins... just way smaller)

  • Mix together 2/3 cup lemon juice and 2 Tablespoons salt.

  • Dip apples in mixture.

  • Arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

  • Bake at 200*F for 8 hours.

  • Turn off oven and let apples sit in oven overnight.

  • Chill until ready to use.


When ready to serve, float them in a punch bowl of your favorite punch or individual mugs of hot apple cider for a frightful looking drink.


These shrunken heads are just the thing for a fun Halloween scare. But, don't be too afraid, after all... at Nielson Chiropractic Center, we've got your back... oh, and your head... quite literally!


Happy Halloween!
