A better way to slice a pumpkin

Perfect Pumpkin Cut.jpg

Subscriber Michael Williams wrote in with this clever modification of the traditional pumpkin incision. He explains the logic:

For years now I’ve been unhappy with the choices for cutting open a pumpkin for Halloween. If you cut the top off in the traditional manner, you end up with singed hand hairs (at best) when attempting to place/light a candle. If you cut the bottom off, you can get the candle in OK but you’re stuck picking up nearly the whole pumpkin each time and it never sits quite right. This year is different – I’ve found the perfect pumpkin cut!

Thanks Michael!
