As a wee babe is making her way into this family (hopefully SOON), I know time to bake pumpkins for pie will be hard to find. This Saturday I cut them up, cleaned them out, and roasted/baked both the pumpkins and their seeds. I've yet to remove the pumpkin peel and turn them into pies (I need to puree the pumpkin & spice it up, and then bake 'em up!) But, here's the process so far.
|Cleaned out, cut up, and roasted and ready to go (I added water to the bottom of the pan)|
|The pumpkin guts (for lack of a better term)|
|Gleaning the seeds from the muck.|
|Cleaned & ready to season (olive oil & sea salt to be simple)|
|Post-roasting. My husband had already discovered these by the time I shot a photo...|
