1. Roasted seeds. If you like sunflower seeds, then you might like to chew pumpkin seeds, they are always the best freshly baked. Set them aside before you pull out the pumpkin and wash the fiber slurry. Then place the seeds on a paper towel and let them dry thoroughly. The dried seeds are spread in oil or butter and then seasoned gracefully with salt. You can also try seasonings. Think about garlic, paprika, paprika or chili. Spread the seed layer on a baking sheet and bake at 300 degrees in the oven for about 45 minutes, or until golden brown and evenly bake. Try not to eat them at once.

The result is a bright orange liquid that can be added to smoothies, sauces, soups and other seasonal recipes. Or, pair with cider and spices for a perfect fall drink.
