FAQs About Pumpkin Seeds Butter

1. Can you use fresh pumpkin seeds to make homemade pumpkin seed butter?

A: You will not be able to make the ideal pumpkin butter using raw pumpkin seeds. It is preferable to use pepitas, which are actually pumpkin seeds with the outer shell removed when producing pumpkin seed butter. The flavor and texture of the butter can be improved by toasting the pepitas. Making pumpkin seed butter using entire, fresh pumpkin seeds with their shells on in the food processor might not turn out as you'd hoped. So, roast the seeds (shelled pumpkin seeds) to make a nice earthy flavor of pepita butter!

2. Why does pumpkin seed butter taste have an earthy note?

A: Pumpkin seed butter has an earthy flavor for two reasons. One, pumpkin seeds naturally have a flavor that complements the presence of natural oils. Second, the method of processing (roasting, texture). More crunch adds more earthy robustness to the pepita butter. On the flip side, the more creamy the pumpkin seed butter the lesser the crunch, and the milder the earthy note. It contributes to what distinguishes and appeals to people who like the distinctive taste profile of pumpkin seed butter.

3. How to perfectly roast pumpkin seeds to golden brown color?

A: Preheat the oven at a preferable temperature according to your recipe. Spread the seeds in a large baking sheet in an even layer. It is good to spray or drizzle some neutral oil over the pumpkin seeds. You can even add flavor to the pumpkin seeds before roasting; for example, a sprinkle of paprika, cinnamon, garlic powder, or a little vanilla extract for a fun twist.

Bake for up to 25 minutes, so as to not overdo the golden brown color. Remember to occasionally stir the seeds. Leave the perfectly roasted pumpkin seeds to cool down then store your roasted pumpkin seeds in an airtight container at room temperature to maintain their golden brown color and nutty flavor. Store in fridge for a longer shelf life.
