Organic Styrian Black Pumpkin Seeds are different to the usual pumpkin seed in that they have no outer hard shell (often removed to leave us with the pepita). The entire seed of this variety of pumpkin is edible, making it a yummy snack or addition to dishes.
The Styrian Pumpkin Seed makes a nutritious, tasty snack. The seed is valued for its essential fatty acid (EFA) content and is sometimes referred to as a brain food. It is a favourite in trail mixes, salads and cereals.
Styrian pumpkin seeds are delicious roasted and lightly salted; however, the valued nutrient properties of the seeds are somewhat diminished when heated so are best enjoyed raw. Styrian Pumpkin Seeds are often pressed to produce an oil. The oil is often enjoyed in salads and drizzled in soups or over pasta.
Uniquely these seeds naturally have no tough outer shell; the complete seed is entirely edible.
Although they are cleaned & dried at harvest time you may find a faint white coating still on some seeds. This is quite natural and safe to eat.
