Soooo this happened.The Coco Jack crew figured out that you can easily open up a pumpkin AND scoop out the pulp with The Coco Jack and scoop! When I tried it out, I had it all done in about 2-3 minutes, and it saved me a lot of mess.
My family and I have a huge pumpkin carving party every year at my home, and the last few years I have dreaded carving because of the very task of cleaning the dang pumpkins! My hands turn orange, it gets all up in my nails, and all over my clothes no matter how hard I try to avoid it. I don’t know if I am doing something wrong, but regardless, it is a challenge for me. This is going to be perfect for pumpkin carving party this year, and it also inspired me to prepare more recipes with fresh pumpkin!

Here is a short clip of me opening the coconut, and also a fun video The Coco Jack put together with a few different ways to utilize this method!
(although you won’t even need em’!)
1. Place The Coco Jack squarely in the middle of the pumpkin. Hit the jack down evenly on all sides, until The Coco Jackcuts through the pumpkin. When you’re hammering, let gravity do most of the work. There’s no need to use a lot of force. Hold it firmly with your non hammering hand so the coconut doesn’t jump around. Lift up on The Coco Jack, the voila, you are done!
2. Scoop out the pulp using The Coco Scoop! When scooping, keep pressure on the scoop but turn the pumpkin, not the scoop.
