Tip for Keeping Carved Pumpkin Fresh



I don’t know about you but I had how fast a pumpkin goes bad after you carve it.  I found this tip on facebook earlier. Author Unknown, if you know the original author please contact me so that I may give credit.

I hope this helps to keep your pumpkins looking fresh and new all season long.

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.

  1. Did this work for you? We always wait till the day before Halloween to carve our pumpkins for fear of them rotting before the big day. I will have to try this next year!
