Remotely bread-how to extract pumpkin seeds
I love adding seeds ( especially pumpkin/pepita ) to my breads but buying the expensive little packets goes against my grain when I throw out pounds of pumpkin seeds every year after I carve my Halloween pumpkins. But how can I get the seed coat out of the way on a big scale? I am not going to peel apart every seed individually. I have scoured the internet for a real way to extract them from their shell but none of the methods I've tried has worked. I have dried or roasted and pressed with a rolling pin and I have put them in my K5 mixer with the paddle. Both methods are supposed to crack the shell and cause the insides to fall away. HA! Joke is on me-never worked.
So how can I shell a lot of pumpkin seeds at home?
