Don’t waste pumpkin seeds!

Halloween Pumpkins- Recipes for Pumpkin Seeds

Don’t want to waste those Halloween pumpkin seeds that you so lovingly carved out? Here are a couple of recipes – one sweet, one spicy- to use them up.

Once you’ve scooped out the seeds and fibres from your pumpkin, wash them thoroughly and pick out as much mush and fibrous material as you can.
