I couldn’t very well write a post about Epicurious.com and leave the über-hip CHOW.com in the dust. First, a confession: I’ve never actually used any of the recipes on CHOW, but I think their website is really cool. If you ever wanted to know How to Pair Wine and Halloween Candy or how to make Glow-in-the-dark Gin and Tonic Jelly, CHOW is the place to go.
Enough with the goofy links. Here’s the real link love: CHOW’s most recent photo gallery addition, “10 Ways to Spice Up Pumpkin Seeds.” From wasabi and coriander pumpkin seeds to pumpkin-pie spiced pumpkin seeds, CHOW takes pumpkin seeds to a whole new level. Here’s some good news for you: you don’t have to wait until you carve your pumpkin on October 31 to try all 10 variations nor do you have to deal with the muck and guck of cleaning pumpkin seeds , you can use raw pumpkin seeds (pepitas) to make your spicy seeds (don’t worry, I won’t tell). When you view the photo gallery, just click on the photo for the recipe.
Which variation are you going try first?
