Don’t throw away those seeds, here’s how we turn them into a delicious snack!
After scooping out the seeds, they’re going to be a bit messy. To clean them, throw them into a bowl of cold water. Swish the seeds around a bit then as they float to the top, take them out.
They’re mostly clean at this point, which is fine because they have one more chance to clean up. Add the mostly clean seeds to a pot of boiling salted water. Then simmer for about 5 minutes. This cleans the seeds and seasons them — like how adding salt to the boiling water seasons pasta.Drain and rinse the seeds. Pull away any extra bits of pumpkin left then dry them as well as you can. The more dry the seeds are, the better they will roast.
