Time to get back to regular life. I have been surprised at how difficult it has been to do things I enjoy. So a simple post to help get things rolling again.
Yes! I said cooking pumpkin! (My local farmer’s market is selling them for a dollar each.) I don’t know if you could do the following with a Halloween pumpkin unless it was big enough to get your hand and the fork inside. Yup, fork! Besides the obvious, a knife, you need a salad type fork and spoon. If you have a salad serving pair, that works even better.
Now you get to use your imaginations!
You know, make a picture in your head!
(In other words, I forgot to take a picture of the next step.)
Fill the bowl full of seeds with water and stir. The water will be orange, the seeds will float, and any chunky stuff will sink to the bottom of the bowl. Reach in there and scoop out the stuff on the bottom and dump the seeds into a colander for a final rinse.
Now choose a drying method! Paper towels or real towels and dump the seeds out to pat them dry.
Now pick your favorite pumpkin seed recipe, cook those seeds and enjoy!
