You will need:
- An apple divided almost exactly in half. If your lover does not like apples, find another fruit you can divide in half.
- A silver-colored knife.
Timing: During the waning moon (also a good time for picking fruit)
♦ Wash the fruit under running water, saying: Fruit sweet, as he/she does eat, move [name] to lasting state. Fruit sweet, as he/she does eat, let him/her not hesitate. Fruit sweet, as we do eat, no longer wait to say I do, Me and you, our lifetime through.
♦ At an opportune time, cut the fruit in half and share it with your lover, reciting the words in your mind three times.
♦ Retrieve any leftovers you can and bury them with other fruit either in the ground or in a pot, reciting the words again.
