AustiNuts Pumpkin Kernels are Some Kind of Magic

There must be some kind of magic in Austin that removes the stringy shell off the pumpkin seeds and leaves behind the delicious inner kernel. Rachel sent me a bag of AustiNuts pumpkin kernels. These things are rich and nutty, almost meaty: Amazing. I've always liked the idea of roasted pumpkins seeds. Sometimes I even like roasted pumpkin seeds. It's hard to get the salt balance right, but even more difficult to roast them so the shells are edible.

AustiNuts has solved this problem with some magic that gets the shells off the pumpkin seeds. It never occurred to me that this was possible. Since it's almost pumpkin carving time, I'll have to see if I can figure out this trick.
