Further information about Big Apple Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds? How about some pumpkin seed? It is shine skin, snow white, lady nail and may be consumed raw, roasted and salted, toasted, baked, with shell (in-shell) or without shell (shelled / hull-less pumpkin seed kernels, pepitas or pumpkin seed meats). Anyway you prefer pumpkin seeds, just a handful may be a delicious snack food, well-suited to a healthy diet and nutrition like the Mediterranean diet.

Name origin

Pumpkin seed! Did you ever wonder what the roots of the words pumpkin seeds are? Some even call them squash seeds or pepitas, when shelled. It may probably be not well known, but the word pumpkin is claimed to have originated from the Greek word "pepon", which means melon. The French nasalized the initial Greek word into "pompon", the British to "pumpion" and the American colonists finalized it to "pumpkin" (ref.: L. Owczarzak, 1986). Now, here is a good reason for one looking for pumpkin seeds to search first of all in Greece! Oddly enough, the Greek -apart from their native word "sp?ria"- also use the word of Latin origin "passatempo", which means "passing time" (eating pumpkin seeds...).

Pumpkin seeds as a snack

Besides their undoubted nutrition value roasted and salted pumpkin seeds are also a great snack food and very popular in many countries such as Greece, Turkey, the rest Balkan countries, Spain, Italy, Mexico, etc. Western Europeans and Americans have relatively recently discovered the appeal of pumpkin seeds as a snack food, which are day-by-day getting more and more popular. Pumpkin seed kernels are also used in bakery products (e.g. bread, pies, etc.), cereals, salads and even in sweets.
