One of my personal favorites for movie night at home! Don’t throw away your pumpkin or squash seeds; save them (they can be frozen if you can’t make this recipe right away) to make this delicious CBD-infused snack. If you love hot and spicy, you will love this, but if you would like to back off some of the heat, use less of the habanero pepper.

Jerk Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Makes several servings

Seeds scraped from 1 or 2 fresh pumpkins or squash, unwashed

1 tbsp (3g) fresh thyme OR lemon thyme

1 tbsp (3g) fresh parsley

1 fresh habanero pepper, chopped, seeds removed

1 tsp (2g) allspice

1 tsp (2g) garlic powder

1 tsp (2g) onion powder

1½ tsp (8g) sea salt

½ tsp (1g) cracked black pepper

1 tbsp (15ml) lemon juice

1–2 tbsp (15ml–30ml) CBD-infused coconut oil, melted

1. Preheat the oven to 360° F (182° C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

2. Scrape the seeds from the pumpkin or squash, clean the strings and fibers out of the seeds, but do not wash the seeds so that the flavor is retained.

3. In a bowl, combine all the seasoning ingredients, including the CBD oil. Add this to the bowl with the pumpkin or squash seeds and toss to combine thoroughly.

4. Spread the seasoned seeds in one layer on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until a little brown. Remove from the oven. These can be served immediately, or they will store for a week in an airtight container.
