Homemade Spicy Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe

Pumpkin Harvest FunHave you done the annual pumpkin picking adventure yet?

Well, if you’re lucky like me, you’ll get out there with a couple of small children and have yourself a harvest-y good time.

As you can see from the image above, wee Vivi picked our special big Jack-O-Lantern pumpkin, and there was generally a lot of running around in hay.

Then we took it home and Aunt Jessie, helped us extract all the seeds and carve Mr. Jack . . .

As you can see, he ended up looking a little like an angry bird pumpkin . . .

Despite Mr. Jack’s disposition, we saved his seeds and decided to roast them up. Partially inspired by the wonderful nutritional benefits of these little powerhouses. Because it was such a blustery day (Thanks Pooh), I devised a special spicy recipe to help warm us all up.

Even Mr. Jack, who seemed so grumpy, had a miraculous attitude adjustment. He seems to be saying, “Enjoy!”
