I am thinking about more practical way how to separate these seeds from that fresh fiber which is around them. The manual job is kind of time consuming when doing larger amount. Maybe interesting would be to soak these seeds in some brine over ~24 hours, the liquid could ease the separation achieve a new taste.

I just planted up to 20 seeds from a good large pumpking type into few smaller plastic containers that will be taken out into garden later in the spring.

I have 6 little seedings growing on my windowsill. They are supposed to grow pumpkins up to 400 pounds. I've never tried this variety before.
Good luck to you with your big pumpkins.

I tried growing pumpkins last year. They kept rotting on the stem :(

But, I love eating the seeds. I wash them in water, let them dry on a rack, oil them up, salt them and bake them on a cookie sheet until golden. I dont know how long they keep but I know they are usually eaten within 30 minutes of coming out of the oven.. LOL

I really enjoy eating them, must try to use the salt and oil like you do. Wow 400 pounds pumpkins, hopefully ours will be that big this year!

I purchased shelled pumpkin seeds (color green). I read somewhere that pumpkin seeds were good for our health. Do you think I can put them on an old pizza tray and roast?

Aria, I would dry roast them in a skillet over a low flame. As soon as they become aromatic, take them off the heat and season to taste.
