Make sure you save your pumpkin seeds when you carve pumpkins or make pumpkin puree this fall. Pumpkin seeds are not only edible, they are delicious. You can even eat them raw if you like, but my favorite way to eat pumpkin seeds is roasted with pumpkin pie spices.
To prepare your pumpkin seeds, remove the pumpkin flesh from the seeds, rinse in warm water and let dry for several hours until completely dry. Raw pumpkin seeds are also available in the bulk section of many grocery stores.
Save your pumpkin seeds and transform them into a delicious snack.
