Tip For Keeping Your Pumpkin From Getting Mushy

(My niece Calli)

My sister Shelley asked me to re post this tip and since she is doing the recipe on Friday I thought it might be a good idea to keep her happy. 

It is time to carve pumpkins at our house.  The pumpkin always starts out looking great.  Well, if not great, at least the kids like them.

After a couple of days, they start to get soft and mushy.  That happens when air comes in contact with the cleaned out, inside flesh of the pumpkin, allowing bacteria to grow.  To slow that process down, I spray the inside of my hallowed out pumpkins with first aid antiseptic spray.

The spray keeps my pumpkin looking fresh for several extra days.  

Don't eat your pumpkin after it has been treated with the antiseptic spray

Check back on Friday, for  my Sister's

  1. We see no signs of Halloween celebrations here, the only pumpkins we see go right into out tummies |:-)) Have a great time Diane

  2. Ahh pretty sneaky trick, it totally makes sense.
