Turn Pumpkin Seeds into a Salty Halloween Snack


After carving out your Jack O’ Lanterns, you may be wondering, “What do I do with all the pumpkin remains?” While a pumpkin’s flesh could be used for a great purée, the true prize is the seeds which can make for a perfect snack during a Halloween horror movie.

To start, simply collect the seeds and rinse them to remove any pumpkin remains. Once the seeds have dried, place them in a bowl, add a bit of olive oil and mix in your favorite seasonings. Salt and pepper is a classic choice but other options such as paprika or even popcorn seasonings can help add new flavors. 

Once the seeds are evenly seasoned, lay them on a baking sheet and pop them into the oven at 350°F for 20-25 minutes. Be sure to turn the seeds over a few times while they cook to prevent one side from burning. Once cooked and cooled, simply turn on your favorite Halloween movie and start snacking!

Have a very happy Halloween!
