Recycling pinapple waste into a useful luminaria for traditional festivities was a surprisingly simple and sweet smelling alternative to the usual paper bag candle luminaria I was inspired to create this new year. By combining a few simple tools from the kitchen with the idea of a secondary use of the normaly wasted parts we are able to get just little more creativity into our routines.
Step 1: Using a Pineapple Corer Remove the Edible Part
A pineapple corer helps remove all the edible parts but it can also be done with a sharp knife. Remove the top and bottom before coring and the parts for the luminarias is ready to utilize.
Step 2: Use the Top of the Pineapple Waste for the Candle Holder
Use a sharp knife to bore a small hole in the top of the pinapple waste and insert a stub of a candle into it, light it and slip the pinapple coreless waste over it.Voila, you have a new and usefull little luminaria that smells like the tropics as it burns. Enjoy and let me know if you made some too!
