After you’ve converted a pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern – or pumpkin curry, or … – the question remains: What to do with all those seeds? You can simply roast them, or, try what the neighbors on 40th SW near The Junction did again this year, getting together for a Pumpkin Seed Cookoff. Kerry White shared photos and info – above, the winners: Kerry reports, “Bob took the Judges’ Award, Aubrey got the Most Entertaining Seed, Paul was first, Will second, and Brady third.” As for what they created, Kerry says, “The winner was ‘A Sweet Surprise’ that was super crunchy. Second place was Buffalo; third place was a jerk seed. Most entertaining was a candied seed loaf, and the judges’ award was pumpkin-seed-ale caramels.”
Congratulations to the creative cooks of 40th SW!
