Monster Seeds

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

It's been a while since I've posted anything... just nothing outta the ordinary going on here, regular o'l ribs, shoulders, and such.

 

If felt this was worthy, so I hope you enjoy it.

 

My mom grew these punk'ens and gave them to the girls. The biggest one was just shy of 100#'s - could hardly pick it up.

So's I grabbed a beer and the saws-all and we carved us some Punk'ens!

After I had the tops chopped off, I couldn't believe the size of the seeds. Just couldn't pass up roasting some of them up.

Punk'ens




Roasted: I brined them first for a couple of hours in salt water, then dried them at 300 for about an hour. Once good and dry, I tossed them in 1/4 cup of melted butter seasoned with garlic and onion salt, then back in at 150 while Trick-or-Treating for about 2 hours. I thought they turned out good. Should have tried smoking some...but ran outta time and am trying to get ready to hunt elk.


Quarter sized seeds




Hope everyone had a safe fun Spook Day!

I haven't had any punkin seeds since I was just a youngster.  I sure don't remember ever seeing any that big!  Lookin' good, Tracey.

The meat tasts great.  The draw back is that the shells are so thick, you can't just munch the entire thing, you have to crack them and dig it out.  The regular sized seeds I've toasted in the past could be munched shell and all.  Shelling pumpkin seeds is a PITA, IMHO!

Man, those things are huge! I don't think I have ever seen such biguns! They are from the genus DollyPartonus family of pumkins.
