Turn Pumpkin Seeds into a Salty Halloween Snack


After carving out your Jack O’ Lanterns, you may be wondering, “What do I do with all the pumpkin remains?” While a pumpkin’s flesh could be used for a great purée, the true prize is the seeds which can make for a perfect snack during a Halloween horror movie.

To start, simply collect the seeds and rinse them to remove any pumpkin remains. Once the seeds have dried, place them in a bowl, add a bit of olive oil and mix in your favorite seasonings. Salt and pepper is a classic choice but other options such as paprika or even popcorn seasonings can help add new flavors. 

Once the seeds are evenly seasoned, lay them on a baking sheet and pop them into the oven at 350°F for 20-25 minutes. Be sure to turn the seeds over a few times while they cook to prevent one side from burning. Once cooked and cooled, simply turn on your favorite Halloween movie and start snacking!

Have a very happy Halloween!

Shifting to Stability

For the third consecutive month, sales activity improved over last year’s figures, and year-over-year new listings and inventories eased. This trend will help support more stability in the housing market.

“Price declines have likely brought some buyers back into the market,” said CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie, noting improvements in the market continue to be driven by homes priced below $500,000. In the condominium apartment market, sales improved by 16 per cent this month. This represents the segment’s best September since 2015. Year-to-date growth in both the attached and apartment sector were enough to offset the modest decline in the detached sector resulting in year-to-date sales growth of nearly one per cent in the city. Despite improving sales and reductions in inventory, the overall market remains oversupplied. This continues to weigh on prices.

“While housing demand is modestly improving, sales activity remains relatively weak,” said Lurie. “The market is moving toward more stable conditions, but this is mostly related to supply adjustments in the city.”
