Does anyone know if you can freeze those little miniature pumpkins and reuse them as decorations again next year? I bought two dozen of them and hate to throw them away. I've had them outside and they still seem to be ok.
If you tried freezing them, and then thawed them out, they will turn to mush.
If you see that they are in good condition, you can cut them open, remove the seeds and boil them until they are soft like squash and make pumpin pies and bread.
Why don't you make some pumpkin bread and share it with family, friends and neighbors.
If they are sugar pumpkins you can cut them in to remove the pumpkin seeds and put them on a baking sheet flesh side down, drizzle with olive oil, roast at 350 degree for 45 minutes until soft, puree and add no seasoning. Use to make pies, pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup or any pumpkin recipe;remember that you control seasonings and herbs kin recipes with freshly roasted pumpkin.
She's probably talking about those mini ornamental pumpkins which you cannot make any food out of to my knowledge. You can't freeze them either. We used to grow them in the garden and I just kept them in a basket as a decoration for as long as they'd last. They do last quite a while but eventually will start getting soft and even moldy and then it's time to pitch. I used to keep gords and the mini pumpkins long after the Fall so just enjoy them for as long as you can.
Not sure about freezing them, but here's a fun way to extend their use. After Thanksgiving spray paint them white, stack them up and decorate to look like snowmen!
