What to do with Halloween pumpkins
After the Halloween party, I had 6 lovely pumpkins to deal with.
The first one met my knife yesterday and then I gutted and roasted it. Does that sound homicidal?
Perhaps I’ve been watching too much crime tv huh?
I roasted the pumpkin seeds.
Here is what I coated them with:
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 2 tsp garlic salt
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 3 grinds of black pepper
Clean your seeds.
Mix with oil and seasoning.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes. I stir my seeds at least once during the baking process.
I am by no means the only one roasting pumpkin seeds lately.
Here are a few other people’s pumpkin seed roasting posts.
Linda of Savoring Every Bite pan toasts her seeds.
Greg and Katherine of Rufus’ food and spirits guide use cider vinegar, sugar and nutmeg.
How do you toast or roast your pumpkin seeds?
Don’t forget, Allie and I will be back with another Slow Cooker Link up on Monday.
What are you going to be slow cooking this weekend?
