No clue here, but I will watch for smarter replies Carol! ;o)


Oooh, flanell jeans! I had a pair a couple of years ago. Loved them. Wore them out. Now I can't find them here to buy a new pair...


I heard ketchup was good to clean copper bottom pats and pans? I always have that on hand. Also... Heard Bar Keepers Friend will remove scratches from vintage dinnerware. I've yet to try that too! I like the theme of this post!


About the stems--I haven't tried this but why don't you just use a good sharp knife-- cut around them and remove them-then maybe after the excess has dried up you could remove it? Where do you order flannel lined pants?


I have a set of copper cookware that I clean with Wright's Copper Cleaner. It's non-abrasive so doesn't scratch the surface, works in minutes, easy peasy. I find it in the cleaning products section of my supermarket. Lasts for a long time, comes with applicator sponge inside. I've used this product since the 60's.

As for the punkin stems: I would cut them as close to the flared part of the stem as possible to a depth of at least 1.5 inches, pull out like a plug, cut any vegetable matter from the inside stuck on the stem, set out to dry naturally on a grate or screen to allow air flow around the stem. Just my .02 cents worth.

Truly, I felt obligated to help with your stems since you have done me the great favor of saving my lemons for a much better use. But I know nothing about the matter....I would have suggested letting the rest of the pumpkin rot around the stems (yech!) but I had the impulse to google for an answer and, lo and behold, :
Happy stemming!


Jeanette!!!!! YOU are the BEST :-) Oh and the process for how to make the velvet pumpkins too???? you are an excellent researcher and I am in your debt.
