Toasted Pumpkin Seeds and Pepitas

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

Happy Halloween! Here are two recipes for toasted pumpkin seeds. One with kosher salt and one with spices. Both are tasty – it just depends on how spicy you like them. And the picture of the masked duo (below) is from Halloween, circa 2002. The Spiderman movie was very popular in our house back then, and rather than have two Spidermen, S opted to balance out the representation. What a guy!

Around here, Halloween is a two week celebration. S has been all kinds of scary creatures for the past week or so, as he goes on his third year of participating in the Nightmare at Beaver Lake. It’s a wonderful way to get scared, the kids get community service credits, and the proceeds go to worthy causes around the community and the world.

Tip If you don’t like the white hull, you can purchase pepitas, which are sold without the hulls on them.

    The best part of carving a pumpkin is harvesting the seeds! I recently made a batch sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon. It was delish!

    I just saw that somewhere recently – that would only work with real sugar and cinnamon together. Yum.
