What to do with pumpkin seeds from an actual pumpkin?

I KNOW this has been asked before but the Force is not strong with my google-fu today.

The seeds actually scooped from a pumpkin…do they need to be hulled somehow? Can I just dry them and use them like store bought seeds? Can I sprout them?

Also, can I use the pulp from the middle of the pumpkin for anything? I don’t see why I couldn’t blend it right in with the rest of the flesh. (I hate wasting ANYTHING).

    It appears you can! You can use them right out of the pumpkin with the white shells on. This recipe explains:


  • I blend all parts of pumpkin – peel, middle part, seeds – in my smoothies and soups. It is all good. Also you can use middle part for massaging your body and cleaning skin.

    I seperated the seeds from the pulp, rinsed them, salted them, and dehydrated them. Now I eat them as a salty snack once in a while.

    I made squash seeds in the dehydrator last night. I put them in a bowl with some raw olive oil, fresh lime juice and sea salt and swirled them around a bit. I dried the ones still stuck together by pulpy threads on the grate rack and the rest of the teflex sheet, turning once. They're really good.
