Happy…almost Halloween all! We are about to start carving pumpkins and I wanted to post a VERY AWESOME tip for those of you that may be carving (or just recently did). There is sort of a magic trick to help preserve those awesome pumpkins you just spent forever doing.
Pumpkins need moisture and they also need something to help slow down the growth of mold. Here is what you can do…. Mix 1 teaspoon bleach with 1 gallon of water (you may need a few gallons and a few teaspoons to cover your pumpkins). Then, let your carved pumpkins sit in it for about 4 hours (yikes, scary I know, but it really does work).
Then you can also cover the carved areas and interior of pumpkin with petroleum jelly (or vaseline) which will help it stay moist. Enjoy and have fun!
