How do I clean pumpkin seeds to roast them?

Pumpkin seeds have become a popular snack over the years, and for a good reason – they are nutritious and delicious. Roasting pumpkin seeds is easy, but you need to clean them first before you do that.

Here’s how: Start by removing the seeds from the pumpkin and rinse them in cold water to remove any pulp clinging to them.

Next, place the seeds in a pot of boiling salted water for about 10 minutes. This will help to soften the seeds and loosen any remaining bits of pulp.

After that, drain the water and spread the seeds on a clean kitchen towel to dry.

Once the seeds are dry, toss them with olive oil and your favorite seasonings before roasting them in the oven until they are golden brown and crunchy.

And there you have it: clean and delicious roasted pumpkin seeds that will surely be a hit!

How do I store roasted pumpkin seeds?

The best way to store roasted pumpkin seeds is in an airtight container, such as a glass jar or a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid.

This will help keep moisture and air out, which can cause the seeds to become stale and lose their crunchiness.

You can store them at room temperature for up to a week or in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. If you want them to last even longer, store them in the freezer for up to three months.

Just label them with the date to keep track of their freshness.

With these storage tips, your roasted pumpkin seeds will stay delicious and nutritious whenever you crave a healthy snack.
