A couple days ago, Mom and the two younger ones went to Nature Nuts. This time it was pumpkins! They carved a pumpkin and got the seeds and all the gook in it. Almost no body else wanted their seeds. Miss Krista was going to dump them out to the animals, but she said that we could have them!
We cleaned the seeds a couple of days ago. We took the stringy stuff out of it for the compost pile. The seeds we washed and put in the refrigerator. The good pumpkin stuff we cooked it. We did lots of stuff with it!
So today we made some pumpkin seed snacks! We boiled the seeds for about 10 minutes. Then we put some of them on a pan and made three different seasoning. Audrey and Andrea used 2 Tablespoons of butter and 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce. Audrey put lots of Mrs Dash lemon pepper on and some garlic powder and a tiny bit of salt. Andrea used Lawry’s Seasoning Salt. I used 2 Tablespoons butter with sugar, cinnamon, cloves, and allspice. I did not measure mine, just added till it tasted good.
Then you put it in a 350 degree oven for about 1/2 hour. They were brown and crunchy. We stirred them occasionally. Be careful that you don’t get burnt! We had between six to eight cups of pumpkin seeds before we ate three cups! 🙂
Our house smells like pumpkin! If you want your house to smell like pumpkin spice, I would recommend doing this!
Thank you Miss Krista, they were yummy!
