    Preserve Carved Pumpkin | After you scoop out and carve your pumpkin, dip it in a large container of bleach and water (use a 1 tsp:1 gal mix). The bleach will kill bacteria and help your pumpkin stay fresh longer. Once completely dry, (drain upside down), add 2 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to a quart of water. Brush this solution onto your pumpkin to keep it looking fresh for weeks.

    I only just recently tried it, pumpkin is on day 4, smells a bit like vinegar but not too off-putting, and looks GREAT. By now, my carved pumpkins always start dehydrating and molding inside. I will tell you, since I did this early in the season, that this pumpkin is indoors not out with more flies/bugs to attack it. And tomorrow, i will brush on more vinegar solution. Hope that helps you!

    Rebecca, this is Carla. I'm so sorry about the rude post. My kid posted that thinking she was funny. I apologize. She had had her pintrest privileges taken away as a result.

    Any idea if the bleach and lemon juice suggestions work in south Florida? We can't get a pumpkin til just a couple days before halloween due to the humidity. Any earlier than that and it's rotten by halloween.

  • D Merg

    Jen, I'm not sure about how the solution would work in Florida, but perhaps it's worth a try.
