    Default I'm making Pumpkin Pie Simmering Potpourri........

    I have been doing these for a couple of years now, dd & I used our Jack-o-lanterns...We cut it into manageable sized pieces, sliced thin using a hand crank food slicer (you can use a food processer)
    dried the slices in a food dehydrator (you can use a low oven with the door slightly open) When dry, add pumpkin pie spice and toss to coat(I use the cheap spices from the dollar store) and put into cello bags and ties ribbons..... Tie on a card "Pumpkin PIe Simmering Potpourri" with instructions: Place a couple of teaspoons in a saucepan with a cup or two of cold water, bring to a boil, turn down and simmer to make the house smell like Pumpkin Pie.....
    We are giving them to Teachers, family and friends for Thanksgiving..... I can make them for pennies a bag.....

    I don't mash it, I do slice it in a hand turned slicer, you can use the slicing plate on the food processor...... These will dry out very thin, not much left so plan on doing alot, a whole pumpkin at least.......

    Sounds like a great fall idea to me. I'm going to need to make a craft list so I don't forget to do all this stuff.

    This sounds wonderful. I will be picking up a pumpkin at the store as soon as they get them in. Thanks for the great tip. I can smell it in my mind now.
