I used to throw away the seeds whenever I cook pumpkin but later realized that they are the very thing that I used to get from the super market. If you love pumpkin seeds as much as I do, why not harvest them whenever you cook them?
- Cut off the seedy part of the pumpkin and soak it in water. Wash the seeds from the flesh.
- Tower dry the seeds.
- Use a frying pan and dry fry the seeds. You do not need to add any oil.
- Once they are dry enough, you can keep the seeds in containers up till one month or even longer. (I harvested quite a lot of Kabocha seeds the other time and they are still around in my air tight container.)
