    question about roasting old, sun exposed pumpkin seeds

    Primal Fuel
    Hi all,

    apologies for a badly written thread last thing at night but i had this question:

    Ive got a jar on my counter with old pumpkin seeds that have been bleached by sun shine and dont taste very good. Now I wondered is it safe to roast these aka will I not expose myself to fats I dont want to ingest?

    Thanks in advance,

    Skydiver.
