There’s a whole heap of food and drink you can make from anything left over from Pumpkins. One example of a very healthy snack are these seeds. They’re very good for you, tasty, very easy to eat and extremely easy and fast to make. You can also mix and match different flavours by using various sweet and savoury spices – I’ve usually got a pot of these seeds roasted with Cinnamon and Nutmeg.
All you need is the seeds from as many pumpkins as you have.
1. Rinse the seeds under cold water, picking out the pulp and skins. To make this easier, try to do it as soon as possible – the longer you leave it, the drier the pulp and skins get, making it harder to separate.
2. Put a teaspoon of Oil on a baking sheet, and place the seeds in a single layer on the sheet. Add in any herbs and spices you’d like at this stage. Make sure that all of the seeds are completely covered in oil.
3. Bake at 150 C/ 300 F for 15 minutes. Take out, stir and put back in for a further 10 minutes.
4. Take out of the oven, leave to cool and then store in an air tight container. Try mixed in with a variety of different nuts, seeds and fruits.
