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.

Beim Auspacken war ich überrascht von den großen, fleischigen Kernen. Beim Umschütten aus der Verkaufspackung zeigten sich dann viele, weniger gute Kerne. Fazit: Dann kann ich auch günstigere aus dm oder ALDI nehmen.

Zum zwischendurch Knabbern sind die Kürbiskerne gut geeignet. Verpackt wurden die Kürbiskerne früher in Folie, jetzt im Glas. Das ist Ermessenssache, da für den Versand leichtes Gewicht von Vorteil ist.

Die Kerne sind zum Knabbern und für Salate hervorragend geeignet. Leider sind sie , wie auch die Walnusskerne deutlich teurer geworden.

Mal ein etwas anderes Eis geniessen : Vanilleeis, Kürbiskernöl und Kürbiskerne darüber geben. Natur pur

Sie sind gut knackig, sind gesund und eignen sich wunderbar um Körnerplätzchen zu backen.
