Preservation of the pomaceous fruit of the malus domestica?
(An apple) SWIM wants to make his own paraphernalia which will be a kind of pipe, but he also wants to be very creative.
Everyone is familiar with the "apple bong" and SWIM had the great idea of making his own hand-carved, reusable apple bong by somehow preserving an apple. In SWIM's head he has the image of a very shiny apple covered in enamel but he knows that the apple will only rot inside the enamel shell.
What could SWIM do to the apple in order to fully preserve it once he's carved it?
Thank you very much =]
(Incredibly unusual thread, I know. Many apologies accompanied by much love)
Apple pipes aren't exactly good for using for more than a day. Unless SWIY is in an area where apples are extremely hard to come by, my lizard recommends that he just use it a few times then eat it or chuck it. Lemon juice does help to keep apples from turning brown though and might preserve it somewhat. He could also keep it in a ziploc bag with as little air in the bag as possible and put it in the fridge.
Smirnoff: That doesn't work unless the apple is undamaged to begin with, not to mention it's going to make smoking it rather difficult. OH AND DON'T MAKE CARAMEL IN A FRYING PAN! Use a double boiler or it's going to burn. You could also but caramel for the purpose and use a microwave.
And it's an apple! They're cheap and plentiful in the northern hemisphere this time of year. You know the old saying "smoke and eat an apple bong a day keeps the doctor away." It isn't just fun to say, but it's damn fine advice. You can get a whole bag of apples for less then a very small bag of weed, there's no reason to keep an apple bong for days on end.

Reason: added some candy making advice.
The best way to keep an apple pipe from going bad is to make a dried apple pipe. Simply follow the instructions for a dried apple doll head via this website here: http://www.appledolls.org. SWIY could carve a face into it like on the website and have a face on their apple pipe or simply follow the drying instructions from #6 to #7, just remember that it is dry once it is spongy and it should last for years.
Make sure to carve the pipe holes out of the apple once it has completely dried. It will shrivel up and change shape slightly during the drying process so if holes are made before it has dried they may become irregular and clog up the works for a usable pipe.
Apple pipes are good for a quick solution but if one finds buying 1kg of apples daily(exageration) for smoking out of them then one should think about investing in a small pipe.They're cheap and easy to carry around.
well for curing the munchies the best way is still to eat brownies-weed... this is the definition of infinite: you get high -> munchies -> you get high again -> munchies...
SWIM once left a plate of brownies he was meant to be taking away with him to a friends though he forgot them and was due to be away for a couple of weeks so he rang up his housemate and let him know he could have them.
His housemate didn't quite realise how strong they were and followed the above pattern. Hours later when another housemate came home he was sat in the living room on his own crying. He hasn't smoked weed since lol.
