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!
