A Buyer's Guide To Pumpkins
Master list of Pumpkin varieties
- When buying pumpkins, select a firm, heavy pumpkin without
blemishes or spots.
- Look for pumpkins with a rich, orange color
and an attached, dry stem.
- A well-formed, heavy pumpkin will
have more meat, less waste and a sweeter flavor than lighter weight
- Avoid pumpkins with scars or cracks.
- If stored in
a cool (50 degrees F), dry, well-ventilated place, pumpkins will last
three or four months. If kept at room temperature, pumpkins will
keep for about one month.
- Pumpkin puree can be refrigerated for
3-5 days or frozen for later use (up to a year in the freezer). One 2 to 2 1/2 pound pumpkin equals
1 1/2 cups of pumpkin puree (enough for one pie).
- Small, two- to
three-pound pie pumpkins are easiest to use in cooking.
