Pumpkin Seeds are known as Pepitas when referred to in the culinary sense. As in, Pumpkin Seeds you plant, but Pepitas you eat. They are the same thing though. Pumpkins are part of the squash family. Pumpkin seeds are a small flat tear drop shaped seed with a fibrous and tough outer husk that can be eaten, and a soft green seed inside that has a pleasant and earthy flavor and can be eaten raw.
These raw Pepitas have had the husks removed. They are ready to use, though their flavor is enhanced through roasting. Raw pumpkin seeds can be roasted and seasoned and enjoyed as a snack, or used as an ingredient in breads and sauces. Unsalted Pumpkin Seeds are popular in the Mexican sauce Mole Poblano.
Buy pumpkin seeds that have been prepared for you and avoid the stick mess and extensive clean up of gutting your own pumpkins for the seeds inside.
