Candied Pumpkin Seeds
We’re gonna make something special today, that’s a snack called Candied Pumpkin Seeds.
Sure you can sweet fried a lot of different kinds of things such as taro, walnuts or even sweet potatoes but we’re gonna choose pumpkin.
Why’re we gonna choose pumpkin? It’s because it is healthy and tasty of course.
These tiny snacks are best for staying as a couch potato. Eat that when you watch soap opera, have it your way, you could also use them as garnishes on your own dishes.
Normally, most of the sweet fried snacks are unhealthy. They use caster sugar to make them, the sugar tastes too sweet when you bite on it. Ours are different, it’s less unhealthy.
The sugar we’re using in making these snacks is different too, we use brown sugar instead of caster sugar because it has less sweet content.
For your information, we’re gonna make a syrup, it’s best to handle with caution as syrup is pretty high in temperature.
If you’re ready, let’s get started!
Candied Pumpkin Seeds Recipe
Pumpkin Seed: 200g
Brown sugar: 150g
water: little bit
First of all, we warm the pumpkin seed with medium heat and avoid burning them.
Then, we start preparing our syrup by pouring sugar on the sauce pan and cover water exactly like the photo below.
W boil the sugar mixture until we have sticky texture like below.
We pour the Pumpkin seeds into the syrup, lower to low heat and keep folding them until they become white in colour.
Lastly, we pour the Candied Pumpkin Seeds on a flat tray to cool down and enjoy the little snacks.
