What are your holiday traditions? Oh come on; I know you must have at least a few for each special occasion. Do you sing carols at Christmas time or say a prayer at Thanksgiving? One of my favorites is the classic Easter egg hunt we like to do on that bright sunny morning. My daughter always has a blast with this ritual. There’s just something about plastic eggs stuffed with candy that gets her excited. Now, I must say that my absolute favorite yearly tradition is Halloween – all these tricks, treats, and pumpkins. And I love pumpkins. Have you carved your pumpkin this year? Whatever you did, I hope you didn’t throw away those delicious pumpkin seeds.
So, Halloween is over, I hope you didn’t discard those pumpkin seeds without first considering the possibilities. There are plenty of pumpkin seeds recipes: baked pumpkin seeds, roasted pumpkin seeds, toasted pumpkin seeds, salted pumpkin seeds, chocolate covered pumpkin seeds. Or it could be delicious pumpkin muffins with pumpkin seeds or my favorite pumpkin soup with pumpkin seeds or even avocado-pumpkin seeds salsa! Pick one of those or creat your own pumpkin seeds recipe.
You clean pumpkin seeds off, lay them out on a baking sheet and sprinkle them with salt. Once they’re baked for a while, they’ll definitely make a tasty treat.
