While we wait for a new review, here’s one of my favorite fall treats I always loved when I was younger. If you’ve never tried pumpkin seeds, it’s fairly cheap and an easy project for the kids before they start hacking up pumpkins for Halloween.
Sharp, slender knife
Prep Time – 10 minutes
Cook Time – 25 minutes
Finish cleaning out the inside of the pumpking if you want to make it a jack-o-latern later. You won’t get everything out, but it should look much cleaner.
Coat a shallow pan in olive oil, light butter, or cooking spray to prevent the seeds from burning. Sprinkle moderately to liberally with salt (or garlic powder) to taste. Make sure the seeds are spread apart and not clumped on top of another.
Cook for 25 minutes at 300 degrees to a golden brown. Use a wooden spoon and mix them up halfway through. Depending on how crispy you want them, you may keep them in slightly longer. Be careful they do not get black.
If reheating, pop them in the toaster for one cycle. They’ll taste almost as good as they do out of the oven!
ENJOY! These are one of the best reasons to pay 1/2 price for those pumpkins after Halloween. Buying the seeds from a manufacturer are expensive! =)
