Our Halloween Pumpkins…and what we’re doing with the seeds


J and I waited until today to carve our pumpkins.  (His has a knife in its mouth that can’t really be seen in the picture and mine has fall leaves cut-out.)  This Halloween won’t be so fun for me as I’ve just started a 20-hour midterm :(. But while I model some earth systems on Excel, I’ll also be eating candy and roasting our pumpkin seeds. Here are the two recipes I will be following:

The classic way:

– Spread out the seeds on a baking sheet

– Sprinkle them with salt

-Roast in the oven at 300 for ~45 minutes, or until crispy

The New Recipe:

– Toss the seeds (1 cup) with the following:

  • 1 T melted butter
  • 1 T sugar
  • 3/4 t cinnamon
  • 1/4 t nutmeg
  • dash of salt

–  Grease a baking sheet and spread the seeds out

– Bake at 300 for ~45 minutes, stirring to prevent the seeds from sticking
