Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Ginger & Cinnamon or Cardamom & Brown Sugar or Cayenne & Worcestershire, or just plain Salt & Pepper. It’s that time of the year to put those spices to work by seasoning and roasting pumpkin seeds.

But first, you need to get your hands in the mush and separate the pumpkin seeds from the pulp. After you slice the pumpkin open, scoop out the pulp and seeds, and place into a bowl of warm water. Then start squishing the pumpkin pulp between your fingers to separate out the seeds. Discard as much of the pulp as you can. Finally, pour the remainder through a metal strainer, and run warm water over it while you rub the seeds between your fingers. Eventually, the pulp will start sticking to the bottom of the metal strainer and you can pick out the cleaned seeds.

Dry the pumpkin seeds on a paper towel, and then they’re ready for your favorite spice blend!

How interesting to roast pumpkin seeds with cayenne pepper and Worcestershire sauce. My husband chew on pumpkin seeds (I actually never tried before and ask him if they are THAT good... haha). I bet he'll enjoy this flavor!

Can you eat the whole seeds or do you have to crack them and nibble just the inside?

Hi Petra, you can definitely eat the whole seeds. After baking them, they will be crunchy and a bit fibrous. Enjoy!
