Both Mr. Newbie and I LOVE savory snacks and roasted seeds and nuts are right at the top of our list. So with that in mind, I thought I'd share how we made our very own roasted pumpkin seeds.
What you'll need:
A pumpkin (we used a pie pumpkin)
Serrated knife or hand saw
Ice Cream scoop or sturdy spoon
Salt (we like sea salt)
Here's what we did:
Cut the pumpkin in half using the serrated knife
Scoop out the seeds (save the pumpkin meat to can or make pumpkin pie filling, soup or other yummy things)
Put the seeds in the colander/strainer and rinse under cool running water until clean.
Spread out on backing sheet and blot with paper towel or napkin
Sprinkle seeds with a layer of salt
Preheat the oven to 250F and place the seeds in the oven to bake/roast
Roast until the seeds are dry and achieve the desired brownness
Remove from the oven and place on paper towels to cool. Salt to taste
There you have it, wonderful, tasty, scrumpdiddly-iscous roasted pumpkin seeds. No worries about preservatives or other nasties and no hassles.
