The flavors of fall are upon us.
 

 Whether you fancy a pumpkin spice latte to kickstart the day or a pumpkin ale to accompany dinner, it’s hard to escape pumpkin flavors during the harvest season (But then again, why would you want to?) In addition to being a favorite flavor, pumpkins provide entertainment: pumpkin carving! Carving a beautiful, round pumpkin is a staple of the fall season. While crafting the pumpkins picture below, we saved the seeds for roast.

There are a number of ways to roast pumpkin seeds, but we thought we’d up the ante of fall flavor and use our Butternut Squash Seed Oil to roast the seeds. With a high smoke point of 425, the Butternut Squash Seed Oil is perfect for roasting and also adds a unique rich, nutty flavor to the seeds.
