Butternut Squash Pepitas


Brand: Stony Brook Wholehearted Foods

Our brined and roasted butternut squash seeds (aka butternut pepitas) are a crispy crunchy snack you can eat straight from the bag or sprinkled over salads and veggies. The seeds have a lightly salty, savory flavor similar to those jack o' lantern seeds your Mom used to roast in the oven after Halloween. Seeds are high in Vitamin E, and beneficial antioxidants like lutein and beta carotene. These are the same seeds roasted and pressed to create our butternut squash seed oil. The seeds have hulls that are softened by brining and roasting and do not need to be removed before eating; they should be eaten whole. Non-flavored or Sweet Chili!
