Shrunken Apple Heads
by Annette Englebert
Taste of Home
1 cup lemon juice
1 tbsp salt
4 large granny smith apples
In a small bowl, combine lemon juice and salt; set aside. Peel apples. Cut each apple from the stem to the blossom end; discard seeds and core. Using a sharp knife, carefully carve a face on the rounded side of each apple half. After carving, dip each apple in lemon juice mixture for 1 minute. drain on paper towels.
Arrange apple heads on a rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 250 degrees for 2 hours or until apples begin to dry and shrink and are lightly browned on the edges. Cool on a wire rack. Insert cloves for eyes. Store in fridge until ready to use.
When ready to serve lay your heads in your punch bowl or glasses for a great edible garnish.
