Cleaning Directions for Seeds

1. Submerge your seeds under water inside of a colander

2. Agitate the colander until the pulp starts to fall away from the seeds. Use your fingers to help separate the tough pulp from the seeds

3. Place the cleaned seeds onto a sheet with paper towels and let them dry for a few hours. Make sure they are completely dry before cooking

Cooking Directions for Seeds

(You can cook these in the oven, but I prefer stove top because I can monitor it more)

1. Place your seeds into a frying pan on high. Drizzle olive oil and your choice seasoning onto them

2. Keep stirring them around the pan until they turn golden and you hear a “pop” sound

3. Let them cool and enjoy! Store in an airtight container
