You've gone through the trouble of carving your jack-o-lantern. You're staring down at the seeds knowing you should be coveting them like Susie Q down the block. But, meh. You'll roast them. You'll eat a few to try and convince the kids they're a delicious treat.The kids will spit them out. You'll stick them in a ziploc and forget they're in the cupboard until you need that space for your Christmas sprinkles. Until now. Here are some new ways to prepare those seeds that Susie Q may not even know about.
Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
How the Kids Can Help
The kids love the gross part! Separating the seeds from the pumpkin. 🙂 Also, put the spices in a ziploc bag. Have the kids add the seeds to the bag and give it good old shake to coat the seeds with the spices.
Pumpkin seeds are a really great source of nutrients. Long recognized for their antioxidant support, but also a super rich source of magnesium. Alone or on a salad, they really are a food we should find more ways to enjoy.
