WHAT FRUIT CAN YOU USE TO MAKE A SHISHA FRUIT BOWL?
You could make a shisha fruit bowl using any type of fruit.
Ideally a piece of fruit with a hard exterior (for structural support) and a soft interior that can be easily carved out to create a bowl shape. Some of the most popular choices are:
- Apple fruit bowl
- Watermelon fruit bowl
- Orange fruit bowl
- Pineapple fruit bowl
- Lemon fruit bowl
- Pear fruit bowl
- Lime fruit bowl
- Grapefruit fruit bowl
TOOLS THAT YOU NEED TO MAKE A SHISHA FRUIT BOWL
- ShishaPuff Fruit KIT
- Apple corer
- Absorbent paper towel
- Kaloud or Aluminium foil
LETS MAKE SPECIAL FRUIT BOWL :
STEP 1: CORE THE APPLE
Normally this step would come later with other fruit, but since we have to remove an actual core from the apple, it’s best to do first. So, use the apple corer as designed, to remove the apple core.
STEP 2: CUT OFF THE TOP THIRD OF THE APPLE
Usually the first step, cut off the top third of the apple with the kitchen knife and discard (most people eat the leftover fruit).
STEP 3: SCOOP OUT THE INSIDE FLESH OF THE APPLE
Using a combination of the teaspoon and kitchen knife (for any stubborn bits), carve out the inside of the apple to create a bowl shape, leaving at least 1 cm wall thickness. You can even carve out a doughnut shape (leaving a raised stump in the centre around the core hole) to make a phunnel style fruit head.
STEP 4: DRY THE INSIDE OF THE APPLE
While you want some fruit juice to mix with the shisha tobacco, you don’t want the fruit bowl to be wet. Use absorbent paper towel to pat down the inside of the apple to absorb any excess juice.
STEP 5: LINE THE BASE OF THE APPLE WITH ALUMINIUM FOIL
To stop your shisha mix falling down the large hole made by the apple corer, line the base of the apple with a small square of aluminium foil, just large enough to cover the hole. Pierce the foil 3-5 times using the toothpick to allow the shisha smoke to pass through. If you find this method makes the draw too restrictive, you can cross a few toothpicks across the hole instead.
STEP 6: FIT FRUIT BOWL TO THE HOOKAH PIPE IN PLACE OF REGULAR BOWL
The hole made using the apple corer should be the perfect diameter to fit over your stem or ashtray male fitting. Place the apple down over the male fitting and rotate until the apple is seated to create a proper seal. If the fruit bowl is too loose, wrap a layer of paper towel around the stem and test the fit again. Repeat until a proper seal is formed.
STEP 7: PACK THE FRUIT BOWL WITH SHISHA TOBACCO
It’s now time to pack your fruit bowl with a complementary shisha tobacco flavour or mix. It’s really not that much different to filling a regular bowl, so read our how to pack a hookah bowl blog article for more detail.
