Harvest Potpourri

Harvest Potpourri

I found in my files a potpourri using pumpkin seeds, but I thought it would be nice to throw in some dried corn and beans, etc. and call it Harvest Potpourri.  What do you think? I have NOT tried this yet!  If you do please let me know how it turns out and any changes you suggest because I just made up the amounts for corn and beans. lol


  • 1 - 2 cups pumpkin seeds

  • 1 T cinnamon

  • 1/2 T allspice

  • 1 T oil

  • 1/2 cup cloves

  • 3 - 4 cinnamon sticks

  • 1 cup dried field corn (or popcorn)

  • 1/2 cup dried lima beans

  • Real or fake red berries

  • Optional:  Dried berries, dried fruits, etc.


  • Put cleaned pumpkin seeds in a baking dish.

  • Add cinnamon, allspice and oil.

  • Mix well until all seeds are covered.

  • Bake in a 350° oven, stirring frequently, until golden brown, approx. 45 minutes.

  • Add cloves, cinnamon sticks, lima beans, red berries and any other items that would enhance it.

  • Label with poem if for a gift.
