Picture it. You’re harvesting pumpkin seeds, while wearing a jack-o’-lantern T-shirt. Look at you, you Halloween pro, you.

I’m not a jack-o’-lantern fan. I mean I like looking at them, but digging up pumpkin guts? Noooo thank you. Luckily, I found raw pumpkin seeds. So I can make pumpkin seeds hundreds of different ways, without the goo.

A heat-proof spatula is needed for our upcoming Spiced Maple Pumpkin Seed Brittle. It’ll allow you to work with a hot sugar mix, without worrying if you added metal or plastic to the recipe.

I love, love, love parchment paper. It’ll prevent a sticky, gooey mess with our brittle recipe. All you do is throw it away when you’re done. Score.

If you’re going to roast pumpkin seeds, you need a good cookie sheet.

Get those pumpkin seeds in my tummy. Cool those pumpkin seeds fast by popping your hot cookie sheet onto a wire cooling rack.
