Picking the Perfect Pumpkin

This morning at Greenmarket, one of my favorite farmers gave me a good pumpkin-picking tip:

Pumpkins that have the widest stems also have the most flavor.

I've never picked my pumpkin by the size of the stem, until now. But it may be a little while before I savor the flavor for myself - I'm still working my way through some acorn squash from last week.

So, for now, my perfect pumpkin will pose as a festive decoration until I'm ready to make some soup.
