Here’s a quick and easy way to separate pumpkin seeds from the pulp that doesn’t require any fancy equipment and kids can help too! Fill a stock pot or large bowl with water and put the pulpy mess into it. Under water pull it apart. The pulp will sink and the seeds will float. Simply skim the seeds off the top. No mess!
