pepitas

The edible seeds of a pumpkin, aka as pepitas are a delightful fall snack. Children especially love them.Served lightly salted and roasted, the pumpkin seed is a tasty fall treat - and a great source of fiber!

To roast your pumpkin seeds, do not wash them first! Washing removes all the natural flavor. Instead, remove the seeds from the strings and place a single layer on a cookie sheet. Add salt to taste and bake at 300° until dry, stirring occasionally.

Options to taste:
garlic powder
cayenne pepper
seasoning salt
Cajun seasoning blend
