Pumpkin seeds are very versatile in their use. They are ideal for muesli and for refining salads and vegetable dishes. They also add that certain something to soups, especially an autumnal pumpkin soup. Pumpkin seeds are an ideal baking ingredient for bread and rolls and are also a real treat and snack on their own.

Origin and history

Pumpkin seeds, the seeds of the pumpkin, have been known for over 7,000 years. They first spread beyond North and South America with the Americas and have since spread to all warmer regions of the world. Since the 16th century, human cultivation has contributed in particular to the rapid spread of this ancient crop.

The three most common types of pumpkin

Only five of over 800 known pumpkin species worldwide are cultivated, with the giant, garden and musk pumpkin being the most common in gardens. The pumpkin fruits can weigh more than 200 kilograms. This means that pumpkins produce the largest fruits. However, each pumpkin fruit always contains around 150 seeds, regardless of its size.
Strictly speaking, the pumpkin is not a fruit at all, but a berry. Because of its extremely hard skin, the pumpkin is also commonly known as the "armored berry", which contains the pumpkin seeds.

Harvesting pumpkin seeds

Pumpkins need 60-150 days until they are ready to harvest. They are usually harvested overripe between August and October so that the flesh can be removed more easily. The pumpkin seeds are separated from the flesh automatically or often by hand, washed and then dried. The seeds are then peeled and dried again.

Taste and use

With their mild, nutty flavor, crunchy pumpkin seeds go well in hearty dishes, muesli, salads, soups or as a snack between meals. They are also ideal for baking bread and rolls. They also taste slightly creamy due to their high oil content.

Small seeds with a big "heart-healthy" effect

Pumpkin seeds are the seeds of the pumpkin and contain valuable vitamins and enzymes and provide unsaturated fatty acids and minerals such as beta-carotene, magnesium, iron, zinc, selenium and phytosterols, their most valuable ingredients, which are said to be particularly effective in preventing and alleviating bladder and prostate problems. Pumpkin seeds are a good source of protein, containing approx. 30 g per 100 g.

Kürbiskerne werden ja immer als "die grünen Kraftwerke" bezeichnet - die Kürbiskernen der Ölmühle Solling haben diese Bezeichnung auch wirklich verdient, sie sind so knackig und prall und sind so kraftvoll und aromatisch im Geschmack, da schmeckt man wirklich eine "gute Kraft"!
from Elke Hennen at 01.05.2023
Die Kürbiskerne sind qualitativ hochwertig, ich mag sie gern, vom Geschmack her, die Größe... Die Gläser verwende ich auch weiter, weil sie eine tolle Größe haben! Ich bin zufrieden und werde sie zukünftig regelmäßig kaufen!

Ich bin von der Qualität absolut überzeugt und begeistert. Die Kerne sind sehr geschmackvoll aber überhaupt nicht bitter oder das ein fauler dazwischen ist, habe ich auch noch nie erlebt. Daher probieren sie es selber aus .

Nach der erstmaligen Bestellung war die Tüte innerhalb weniger Tage leer, hmmm, so eine leckere, gesunde Knabberei! Die Kerne schmecken im Müsli, Salat, zu Rohkost oder "einfach so" ;-) und wurden daher umgehend neu bestellt!

Die angebotenen Kürbiskerne sind geschmacklich sehr gut. Bis ich sie hier erstmalig bestellt habe, war mir ein Qualitätsunterschied gar nicht so bewusst. Seitdem bestelle ich die Kerne regelmäßig bei der Ölmühle Solling.
