Last Halloween I made these Shrunken Heads in Cider that I saw on Martha’s show. They were surprisingly easy to make!
Peel the apples, cut them in half, cut out faces with melon ballers and paring knives, put in some acidulated water, dry off, then bake in a low oven (250F) for 90 minutes. Add some cloves for a decorative touch but do not make the same mistake I did. Put the heads in the cider right before your guests come. I did it too early and they turned into mush!
