Dad grew a bunch of pumpkins this year. Unfortunately, they did not ripen until recently. I moved three of the sugar pumpkins and two of the large pumpkins into the house at the end of October, in the hope that they would ripen quickly. I was sadly mistaken. Adam keeps bugging me to do something with those pumpkins that have been hanging out on our counter, so I finally decided to use one yesterday.
On ourbestbites.com I found a recipe for making pumpkin puree, toasted pumpkin seeds,and pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, so I gave them all a try. I did change the pumpkin seed recipe around because I've made them before and I know that I like them with just a little salt.
