Raw Watermelon Seeds:

Start with raw, shelled watermelon seeds. You can extract them from fresh watermelon or you can also buy Ariga Foods’ raw watermelon seeds.

Optional Add-ins:

A pinch of salt for taste.

Sweeteners like honey or maple syrup if you prefer a sweeter butter.

Cinnamon or vanilla extract for added flavor.

Pet Jar:

Choose a clean and airtight pet jar to store your watermelon seed butter. The transparency of the jar allows you to monitor the freshness and maintain the crunchiness of the butter. You can buy Ariga Foods’ watermelon seeds which are packed in reusable pet jars and can be further used to store watermelon butter. 


Roasting the Watermelon Seeds:

Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C).

Spread the raw watermelon seeds evenly on a baking sheet.

Roast the seeds in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they turn golden brown. Roasting enhances the flavor and crunchiness of the seeds.

Cooling Period:

Allow the roasted seeds to cool for a few minutes before proceeding to the blending stage.

Blending Process:

Transfer the cooled seeds to a high-powered blender or food processor.

Begin blending at a low speed, gradually increasing to high. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides periodically.

Continue blending until the seeds break down and release their natural oils, forming a smooth and creamy consistency.

Optional Add-ins:

At this stage, you can add a pinch of salt for taste or any optional sweeteners or flavorings if desired. Blend again until all the ingredients are well incorporated, adjusting the sweetness and flavor according to your preference.

Storage in a Pet Jar:

Once the watermelon seed butter reaches your desired consistency, transfer it to a clean and airtight pet jar. The Ariga Foods’ pet jar ensures the freshness and crunchiness of the butter are preserved. Its convenient size makes it easy to store and carry in your office bag or handbag, ready for use in various recipes.

Salad Sensation:

Drizzle watermelon seed butter over salads to add a unique nutty flavor. Its creamy texture complements both sweet and savory salads.

Cornflakes Crunch:

Swirl watermelon seed butter into your cornflakes bowl for an extra tasty and energetic morning. The combination of textures and flavors will elevate your breakfast experience.

The pet jar makes it easy to use watermelon seed butter as toppings for various recipes. Add a dollop to your smoothie bowl, pancakes, or waffles for an instant nutritional upgrade.
