It’s pumpkin seed season! While I love seeing the trees change their colors, one of my favorite things about fall is all the different fall flavors, like eating toasted pumpkin seeds and drinking apple cider. Of course, It’s a great time for kids to do corn mazes and go to pumpkin farms.
As for me, you’ll find me in the kitchen. For the last 3-4 years, I have been perfecting my pumpkin seed recipe. I think I got it down now. I’m really not one to throw other flavors in there like cayenne or brown sugar. I’m a K.I.S.S. guy, aka “keep it simple, stupid.”
If done the right way, all you really need is some butter and salt. I have also discovered that white pumpkins have seeds that are bigger and tastier. My most recent batch turned out great. To help keep me safe in the kitchen, I elevate my power wheelchair with iLevel® when I need to reach for things out of the cabinet. iLevel technology makes the process of perfecting my recipe much easier. I am constantly told that my pumpkin seeds are the best people have ever had. That warms my heart.
I still have over a month left to get more pumpkins and make as many pumpkin seeds as I can before they’re gone. So, get out there and find your favorite fall flavor!
