how to roast pumpkin seeds

last night the mister and i carved pumpkins. we always do this ritual on halloween-while eating snickers bars and drinking whiskey- to keep in the holiday spirit. you see, we get no trick-or-treaters: we have lived in the same house for 25 years and we have probably never had more then 10 little goblins total! its so sad! so, while we were carving our jack o'lanterns, i roasted the pumpkin seeds for snacks today.
it was easy :
1.preheat the oven to 300 degrees fahrenheit.
2.rinse the extracted pumpkin seeds and remove as much of the pulp from them as possible.
3.toss pumpkin seeds with olive oil and sea salt.
4.spread seeds in a single layer on a cookie sheet.
5.bake til golden brown: about 45 minutes.
6. enjoy!

  1. Yum! We did the same thing here yesterday. Sea salt and olive oil really make the deal ever so good!
