Keep Pumpkin Longer (How To)

by Jess Kelley

I've always wonder how to keep a pumpkin longer.. 

Here is a helpful tip I got in an email: 

Once 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.

That's it! 

I'm going to try this when I carve my pumpkin. I should do one with this and one without and see if it really works. 

Thanks Leo!
