Turn Pumpkin Seeds into a Salty Halloween Snack


After carving out your Jack O’ Lanterns, you may be wondering, “What do I do with all the pumpkin remains?” While a pumpkin’s flesh could be used for a great purée, the true prize is the seeds which can make for a perfect snack during a Halloween horror movie.

To start, simply collect the seeds and rinse them to remove any pumpkin remains. Once the seeds have dried, place them in a bowl, add a bit of olive oil and mix in your favorite seasonings. Salt and pepper is a classic choice but other options such as paprika or even popcorn seasonings can help add new flavors. 

Once the seeds are evenly seasoned, lay them on a baking sheet and pop them into the oven at 350°F for 20-25 minutes. Be sure to turn the seeds over a few times while they cook to prevent one side from burning. Once cooked and cooled, simply turn on your favorite Halloween movie and start snacking!

Have a very happy Halloween!

Fraser Valley Real Estate Board


Property sales in Fraser Valley have recovered bringing market into balance

For the third straight month, home sales in the Fraser Valley surpassed 2018 levels bringing the market back in line with long-term averages.

The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board processed 1,343 sales of all property types on its Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in September, a 3.5 per cent increase compared to sales in August 2019, and a 29.8 per cent increase compared to the 1,035 sales in September of last year.

Darin Germyn, President of the Board, says, “The market’s return to balance is good news for both buyers and sellers, however it’s important to put the 30 per cent year‐over‐year increase in sales into context. September’s sales went from amongst the worst in 10 years to just above our 10‐year average.
