The last bit of pumpkin…SEEDS!

While I haven’t always been the biggest fan of pumpkin…I have always been a big fan of pumpkin seeds.  Carving pumpkins is already a treat, and then you get to make a snack out of the orange goo that you dig out…amazing!  Making a batch of pumpkin seeds is super easy but if you need some instructions you can hit up a very entertaining site. I decided to toss the seeds with some Chesapeake Bay Seasoning that I bought at the Spice House with no recipe in mind. Man were they tasty!

I might have to buy a big pumpkin to carve before Halloween just to that a I can make a big batch of these seeds! Don’t think we will get many trick-or-treaters living on the 15th floor of a Chicago high-rise though. Dang. Do city kids get to o trick-or-treating? I’ve never thought about that until now.

  1. We always roast the seeds! I like doing cinnamon and sugar ones for a sweet snack!
