How to Make a Pumpkin Serving Bowl

Description: Looking for something different for your Halloween party? It's easy to make pumpkin serving bowls and dishes for your parties and events. You ca make a wide variety of bowls and dishes, to match how you will use them. All it takes is a pumpkin, and a little effort.

These attractive serving bowls and dishes will be the hit of your party. Make sure to use them for Thanksgiving, too.


How to Make a Pumpkin Bowl:

For pumpkin bowls and dishes, select a healthy, unblemished pumpkin, of the size you want to use.

Next, scrap out the insides of the pumpkin.

Here are some ways to make a pumpkin serving bowl with your cleaned out pumpkin:

1. Cold Drinks, Juices puddings, apple sauce, etc :

  • Clean out the pumpkin just prior to using it.
  • Cut the lid off the pumpkin and scoop out the insides.
  • Pour the liquid, pudding or sauce into the cleaned out pumpkin.
  • Discard it and any leftover contents right after the party. The pumpkin can not be kept.

2. Snack Serving Bowl(Candies, cookies, other treats):

  • Clean out the pumpkin just prior to using it.
  • Cut the lid off the pumpkin and scoop out the insides.
  • Line the pumpkin with plastic wrap.
  • Place the snacks inside the pumpkin.
  • Discard it and any leftover contents right after the party. The pumpkin can not be kept.

3. Hot Drinks, hot applesauce, etc:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut the lid off the pumpkin and scoop out the insides.
  • In a large, shallow pan, add 1/2" of water, and place the pumpkin upside down.
  • Cook pumpkin in oven for about 30 minutes, until pulp is just beginning to get soft. Do not cook it too long, or it may split or leak after filling it.
  • Remove pumpkin from oven.
  • Pour hot cider, hot applesauce, etc. into the pumpkin.
  •  The first time you make this, we recommend placing the pumpkin bowl inside of a flat, shallow dish or bowl. If you have cooked it too long, the pumpkin can leak or split. The trick is to cook the pumpkin just until it starts to get soft.
  • Discard the pumpkin after the party.

4. Miniature Pumpkin Bowls:

  • Miniature pumpkins make excellent bowls for ice cream, puddings, soup, stuffings and much more.
  • For serving ice cream, pudding and other colds treats, follow method #1 above.
  • For serving hot foods like soup, follow method #3 above.


How to Make Pumpkin Serving Dishes:

Pumpkin serving dishes are made and used in the same manner as a pumpkin serving bowl. The difference, is you slice the pumpkin in half (horizontally).  Then, follow method #1, #2 or #3 above.

 Pumpkin Bowls Tip: Depending upon what you are using it for, you may want to line the bottom of the pumpkin bowl with aluminum foil or plastic film wrap.
