I institute the Christmas especial a piddling heavy, in addition to was bothered past times the carte du jour inwards the Thanksgiving episode, but the Halloween offering struck all the correct notes.

Back then, I likely wouldn’t convey had much involvement inwards this pumpkin seed spread, since I needed to relieve room for all those miniature Mr. Goodbars, but now, I can’t intend of anything I’d rather eat. This straddles the struggle betwixt sweetness in addition to savory, in addition to would hold upward real slowly to suit to your tastes.

I involve to credit Cortney Burns in addition to Nick Balla, from a eating theater hither inwards San Francisco called Duna. They create a similar, albeit to a greater extent than savory version, which inspired this spread. If you lot don’t similar the term “spread,” you lot could telephone telephone it a pumpkin seed hummus, or pumpkin seed butter, but no thing what you lot telephone telephone it, I promise you lot laissez passer it a try soon. Enjoy!
