A NEW WAY TO ROAST PUMPKIN SEEDS


( DAILY FCUHOMESCHOOLING INFO FOR ALL )

There is no set recipe for roasted pumpkin seeds since your amounts will differ each time you make them. But follow these simple instructions and you’ll master the process quickly.


1.Place the seeds in a zip-top bag and sprinkle with salt. (No need to worry about cleaning them first—any clinging pulp will get rinsed away later.) Seal the bag and squish to distribute the salt. Store in the refrigerator for 3 days.









2. Remove the seeds from the bag and place them in a colander. Run cool water over them, using your hands to remove any bits of pumpkin.








3. Place the seeds on a pizza pan with holes, or a baking sheet.




4. Pat the seeds dry with a paper towel or clean kitchen towel.






5. Toss them lightly with melted butter or olive oil.












6. Sprinkle the seeds with your favorite herbs and spices. Do not add salt at this point, or the seeds could become inedible.
Toss the seeds to coat evenly.



7. Place the seasoned seeds in a preheated 325-degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown. Check the seeds halfway through the process to prevent burning.
Remove the pumpkin seeds from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasonings.




8. Cool completely, then serve or store in an airtight container.








Pumpkin seeds are not only delicious but also provide many health benefits. Here are ten: 

1-Prostate Protection
promote overall prostate health and alleviate the difficult urination associated with an enlarged prostate.

2-Improved Bladder Function
In some studies, pumpkin seed extracts improved bladder function in animals. 


3-Depression Treatment
They contain L-tryptophan, a compound naturally effective against depression.


4-Prevention of Osteoporosis
Because they are high in zinc, pumpkin seeds are a natural protector against osteoporosis. Low intake of zinc is linked to higher rates of osteoporosis.


5-Natural Anti-Inflammatory
Pumpkin seeds effectively reduce inflammation without the side effects of anti-inflammatory drugs.


6-Prevention of Kidney Stones
They prevent calcium oxalate kidney stone formation, according to studies.


7-Treatment of Parasites
They are used in many cultures as a natural treatment for tapeworms and other parasites. Studies also show them to be effective against acute schistosomiasis, a parasite contracted from snails.


8-Great Source of Magnesium
1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds contains 92% of your daily value of magnesium, a mineral in which most Americans are deficient.

9-Lower Cholesterol
Pumpkin seeds contain phytosterols, compounds that that have been shown to reduce levels of LDL cholesterol.


10-Cancer Prevention
The same phytosterols that lower cholesterol also protect against many cancers.
