How to make a Shisha bowl out of fruit?
Yes! It is true. You can use the rind of a fruit as the shisha bowl. It is a popular shisha flavor-enhancer, and a great emergency bowl to use in times of needs. Pears, apples, kiwi, oranges, watermelons, pineapples, and lemons, are among other fruits that commonly used. Here are the basic instructions (different fruits require slightly different steps):
Step 1: Gather materials
A few additional things to note:
1) Only hollow out your fruit according to how much shisha you will be using (make a smaller divot if you want to use less shisha).
2) Leave enough fruit rind so that it will be stable on the hookah stem – this is because the juices and the heat can change the physical properties of the fruit, and it may become unstable if it isn’t thick and sturdy enough.
3) The coolness of the fruit may require you to use more coals to really get your bowl started.
