Pumpkin Tips

  • Adrian  We use the seeds to make a nice snack. We simply put a little salt on them, then pan fry them with a little bit of oil till slightly brown. They are a really good crunchy snack! No need to peel them, they're fine as is. Harvesting around 60kg of pumpkins this year means we get plenty of pre dinner snacks!
  • Jason   I have never hulled my pumpkin seeds either when roasting them in the oven. Generally I put them on a tray after having cooked something else and just let the residual heat bake them. As for pepitas, they are from a specific kind of pumpkin I believe.
  • Diane  I make similar but I use dukkah seasoning instead as there are many different dukkah mixes to suit every taste - enjoy them with wine/beer instead of nuts etc. They only take a short time in the oven to puff up.
