We are now at the time of year when pumpkins are taking over the world.
Many people choose their pumpkin, wrestle it to the ground and finish their victory by gutting it.
LOL- what thought, eh?!
Don’t fret! Those pumpkin insides are still good! Pumpkin seeds are one of nature’s powerhouses!
How to prepare the seeds:
♦ Seperate as much of the pumpkin strands from the seeds as you can. Little hands are great for this.
♦ Rinse the seeds off in cool water until you can no longer feel the slime on the seeds.
♦ Spread them on a paper towel to dry.
♦ Once they are dry, put them all in a bowl and add a small amount of olive oil.
♦ Stir the seeds to lightly coat them and spread them on a baking sheet.
♦ Lightly dust them with sea salt and bake them for 20 minutes at 300 degrees.
♦ Allow them to cool before handing them out! Only give (or eat) small amounts at a time. Pumpkin seeds are magnificent at cleaning out your insides! They anti-parasitic properties, so a few extra trips to the bathroom can be expected.
Not only are the seeds good for your insides, but they have lots of vitamins and are a yummy treat!
You may ask yourself, “how is this going along with the kitchen wfmw?” Easy, you wash the seeds in the kitchen, you cook them in the kitchen, and when you are done cooking the seeds, you can store them in an absolutely adorable container for your family to enjoy! 🙂 Haha!
