Pumpkin is recognized for its delectable desserts. Pumpkin, which takes its place on the plates in October and peaks towards New Year's Eve, can be consumed until spring. Pumpkin, which is also used in various dishes in Anatolia, can be cooked in soups, tarts, fried, fritters, pies, purees, or even grilled with vegetables that your heart desires. Pumpkin seeds are just like sunflower seeds. The seeds are extracted from the soft orange fruit inside the pumpkin. They can be coated in a salty sauce and cooked in a low-temperature oven for a long time, and they can be consumed like sunflower seeds. They are a source of potassium, magnesium, iron, and zinc. The protein in one gram of pumpkin seeds is equivalent to a glass of milk.
