Product Talk: Pumpkins


Pumpkins make fantastic decorations for the fall. You can carve them for Halloween to make unique or traditional jack-o-lanterns or set them out until Thanksgiving for traditional decorations. If you plan on carving pumpkins, carve the pumpkin right before Halloween or your pumpkin will rot too quickly.  When carving the pumpkin, save the seeds and bake them for a fall treat. You can make a variety of different flavors of seeds. Using cumin and cayenne pepper would make a Tex-Mex seed while using garlic salt, Italian seasoning, and parmesan cheese to make Italian seeds.

Oven-Roasted Pumpkin Seeds:

While carving the pumpkin, put seeds into a bowl. Wash seeds and remove any pulp. Pre-heat oven to 400°F. Place seeds onto a baking sheet. In a microwave bowl, melt butter and pour over seeds. Sprinkle your favorite seasonings over seeds. Bake seeds for 10 -15 minutes or until brown; stirring occasionally.
