Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
Gordy Falk has demonstrated his pumpkin-carving skills at farm shows and fall festivals for many years. In this video, he explains how to select a healthy, ripe pumpkin and safely carry it home before actually cutting designs into it. Falk also tells viewers to first draw their pumpkin's desired "face" or design on paper before cutting into any part of it. Falk carefully reviews the types of carving knives and other kitchen utensils one can use before showing everyone how to remove the top, scoop out the seeds, and cut out different parts of the jack-o-lantern's "face." Tips are included for safely placing a candle inside a carved pumpkin and simplifying the clean-up process as the Halloween season gets underway.
