Sink your teeth into today's top stories from around the globe.
I think George's comment was explaining that is common in Latin American countries to eat them as a regular snack. In the US, what is more common are potato chips, pretzels, and peanuts.
I have not read the pumpkin article, but FYI, in Latin culture the pumpkin seed aka pepitos are roasted salted and eaten as a delicious snack or in salads or other recipes (I recently made an awesome pepito jalapeño chicken salad using more yogurt than mayo and it was incredible)...
Seriously, look up pepitos nutrition facts on wikipedia. They are not only delicious, they are amazingly good for you. Pepitos and flax seeds.. Eat them, om nom.
Huh. I didn't know roasted pumpkin seed were a Latin tradition. We do that too. I look forward to them when pumpkin season comes around.
They're not. EVERYBODY eats pumpkin seeds.
Actually, two of my favorite seasonal treats are The Cheesecake Factory's pumpkin cheesecake and Starbuck's Pumpkin Chai Latte.
13 ways to cook a pumpkin: The custard and cream cheese are definitely things I'd like to try. My family has always made a pumpkin bake, which reminded me of the stew they suggested. You gut a small to medium pumpkin, mix the guts (minus seeds) with rice, beef, spinach, peppers and spices, then bake it. Delicious. And, as it's not a real recipe, we make it differently practically every time. Once I added some spaghetti sauce and parmesian cheese before baking it, and it was amazing.
You can do a lot with a pumpkin.
