Adam and Joanne’s Suggestions

  • Storing: Permit the roasted seeds to chill, then retailer them in an air-tight container. They may final this fashion at room temperature for a few weeks and within the freezer for just a few months.
  • Are you able to eat pumpkin seed shells? We benefit from the shells and love that they add some further fiber. Should you don’t just like the shells, you’ll be able to at all times hull them after roasting. I often do that by biting into the seed and utilizing my tooth to crack the shell.
