- Red apples, early acorn squash or even eggplants
- Soft cloth
- Knife or corer
- Lemon juice
- Sprig of rosemary, basil or other fresh herb
- Taper candle
***Apples seem to last the longest.
Rinse and dry the fruit or vegetable thoroughly. Polish the outside with soft cloth until the shiny. Stand your choice up on its bottom, and use a knife or a corer to make a hole in the top where the stem is located. Go about halfway down so that the candle will have a sturdy base. Widen the hole until it’s the same diameter as your candle. Pour some lemon juice into the hole and allow it to sit for ten minutes. This will prevent the apple from browning and softening too quickly. Pour out the lemon juice, dry out the hole, and insert a sprig of rosemary, basil, or other fresh herb of your choice. Finally, add the taper candle. Use a little bit of dripped wax to secure the taper in place.
