|My carving skills aren't that great. :-(|
Another cute and whimsical idea I got from a magazine. It is called a "cupple", from the words cup and apple. Such a great craft for kids, I am sure they will love t.
No waste too! I used the flesh of the apple to make the juice. ;-)
This is from the November 2011 issue of Disney Family Fun magazine.
What you need:
2 tablespoon cranberry juice
1 cinnamon stick
What to do:
Slice off the top of an apple. Hollow it with a melon baller or spoon, leaving 1/4-inch thick walls around. To prevent browning, drizzle the apple's edge with calamansi juice.
Meanwhile, put the flesh of the apple in a blender and blend until it turns to liquid. Add cranberry juice and blend for about 5 seconds (just to mix things up). Pour into the cupple and garnish with cinnamon stick.
Tips, Tricks and Tweaks:
1. Substitute cranberry juice with seltzer water for an extra kick.
2. Lemon or lime would work if calamansi is not available.
3. Be very careful when hollowing the apple - you don't want to scratch the surface as the juice would leak!
