there is a wonderful pumpkin bread recipe using fresh pumpkin.
The pumpkin bread is so moist and delicious.
Now.............back to the seeds.
Remove the pulp/strings from the seeds. Place seeds in a colander and rinse with cold water ......making sure to remove any remaining pulp.
If you wish to save the seeds for future planting........
Instructions often say to lay the pumpkin seed on paper towels until they dry.......
however, I do not like paper towels for this because the towels often stick to the seeds and is hard to remove afterwards.
Instead, I use cut a large square of clean cheese cloth........long enough to go over and under a baking sheet.......and I tie the ends together on the back of the baking sheet to make the cheesecloth tight.
I then spread the seeds onto the cheese cloth for drying.
After they have dried overnight..........I place them in a paper envelope where they will stay cool and dry until next planting season.
If you want to eat the seeds
clean and rinse them as stated above and place them in a bowl
and click onto my cooking blog for a simple and great recipe to toast the seeds.
