Seeds were removed from four pumpkins and the seeds processed into a purée. This purée is highly nutritional. Slightly more than a litre was obtained and placed in small containers and frozen for long term storage.The purée is used as a supplement added to cereal for breakfast or it may be eaten as a snack.The purée has the consistency of table butter, and has a creamy flavour. The process is to remove seeds from the pumpkin, cook about an hour in a double boiler, strain water, put through a Champion Juicer to remove the seed pulp from the shell and stored.
