Food Facts

When buying your pumpkin, make sure it has a level bottom and one smooth unblemished side for the jack-'o-lantern's face. Children can take part by drawing the jack-'o-lantern's face with a permanent marker before the adult cuts it out. Store the pumpkin outside until it is ready to be carved.

    I love roasting pumpkin seeds, but I always "winged it" with varying results. Thanks to your recipe, this year's seeds will be perfect! Also wanted to share a great tip for drawing on pumpkins- use a dry erase marker, so it can be wiped off if a "boo-boo" is made!!

    I have been making this for years. However, I add a smidgeon of garlic powder as well to give it zip. My grandchildren and children love them. I also use a small amount of olive oil rather than the spray. My son makes them for his children without removing the pith-which is later discarded, but adds extra flavour.
