Stony Brook's brined and roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) are a delicious, crunchy snack that are loaded with nutrients. Seeds are dry roasted at low temperatures to preserve the delicate omega-3 fats and to ensure the best flavor.
Store in a cool, dark place. Use within one year.
Squash seeds are an often overlooked source of nutrition and flavor. High in protein and flavor, they contain vitamins E and A and beneficial carotenoids like lutein and zeaxanthin. When carefully roasted and pressed for their oils the result is a savory, nutty flavored culinary oil that complements a variety of foods from salads to soups and marinades.
Stony Brook works directly with New York farmers to source seeds directly following the fall harvest. With a commitment to local sourcing they aim to support local production and promote environmental and economic health in the Finger Lakes region. Over a decade after they started, Stony Brook Wholeheartedfoods is still the only company in the U.S. producing culinary oil from vegetable seed waste, and one of the only regional producers of culinary oils using 100% USA grown seeds.
These are, hands down, my favorite pumpkin seeds! Full of flavor and crunch.
