Picking The Perfect Pumpkin!

Here are some tips on buying a pumpkin to carve:

  • Make sure it has firm, smooth skin
  • Check to make sure there is at least one even face to make carving easier
  • A green stem, make sure it is not brown (or rotting)
  • A heavy feel for its size
  • No bruises, soft spots, or lacerations on the skin
  • After you have carved your pumpkin and it starts to shrivel, it can be revived by putting it in ice water for about an hour. 
  • Lightly spray the cut surface of your pumpkin with vegetable oil to prevent moisture loss.
