So, I cooked up a bunch of fresh pumpkin the other day, and froze it for pies or whatever later. I tossed all of the cleaned seeds into a bowl with salt and water and pondered. I still have so many seeds left from Halloween and they don’t seem to be going. Granted, I can’t eat them because of Atkins. But in two weeks… So how to make these seeds special? Try a new recipe! I accidentally stumbled upon the world’s most wonderful pumpkin seed recipe ever. Yeah, I tasted them and then had to walk away because I couldn’t stop. Here ya go!
