It's Halloween!

So, to celebrate the holiday, here's a Roasted Pumpkin Seed recipe:


Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 cups raw pumpkin seeds (from the pumpkin you carved, of course)
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • Lots of salt.
First, boil the pumpkin seeds in salt water for 20 minutes.  Lay them out on a cookie sheet overnight to dry (today is Halloween, however, so we can't wait a whole night.  Blow dry them or something.)  Add a tablespoon of salt (or more, if you're a respectable individual) and 2 teaspoons of butter.  Spread the buttery, salty seeds on a cookie sheet, and bake them for 30 minutes at 300 ºF (149 ºC).

Then eat them.

PROTIPS:
  • Use garlic salt (or some other flavored salt) to *spice* up the recipe.  Garlic salt fits with the Halloween theme, I believe, but don't use it if you're a vampire.  Not that you'd need me to tell you.
  • Instead of butter, use some other oily thing, like olive oil or whatever.  Or margarine.  Or some combination of oily things.  Go crazy.

Also, here are some salt-related Halloween costumes (it's not too late to change your costume this year!):

 This guy knows.

 Baby version.

 DIY version/Jimmy Buffett Song?

 Brand loyalty.

 More brand loyalty.

 Veruca Salt from Willy Wonka (Is that Charlie next to her?)

Personal Favorite: The Morton Salt Girl.

Happy Halloween, everybody!

  9. In my country we recently had a big scare because most margarine brands turned out to be really unhealthy.
