Monday's Tip of the Week: Pumpkin Seeds

This week's tip goes along with today's post on roasting and freezing pumpkins. 

Do not waste those pumpkin seeds when you are roasting pumpkins for cooking or carving them for Halloween. 

Simply soak the seeds and any pumpkin "guts" in water, then using warm water separate the seeds from the "guts".  I forewarn you that it takes some time to do this.  Once you separated the seeds place them on a baking sheet, sprinkle with sea salt (and any other spices) and roast in an oven.

Ta-Da you have homemade pumpkin seeds for snacking or cooking in recipes like granola and mole sauce.

I love to store my pumpkin seeds in canning jars.
