I'm keeping the autumn/Halloween fun going with a bit of pumpkin humor! Pumpkins are such a great and versatile squash. Fun fact, pumpkins are also classified as gourds and fruit. They come in various colors, shapes, and sizes. Some pumpkins have a smooth skin and others look like they have barnacles. No matter which variety you prefer, they can all be great fun to carve for Halloween.
If you do carve a pumpkin, why not try roasting the pumpkin seeds for a tasty snack. YOu need to wash and dry the seeds first. Then toss them in a little olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. If you want to jazz them up a bit more, you can add garlic powder or Old Bay Seasoning. Spread them out on a cookie sheet lined with baking paper. Cook at 350° F (177° C) until golden brown, about 15 minutes depending on your oven. It is a good idea to stir them once or twice during cooking to get them evenly brown. When they are brown and crunchy, they are ready to eat!
