We're gearing up for a Major League Pumpkin Carving Bonanza around here. (I promise to share a photo or two when we're finished.) What Jack-O-Lantern carving party is complete without some savory roasted pumpkin seeds? They couldn't be easier to make. Since I was a kid, this is the recipe that I've munched on every October.
This recipe is for about 3 cups of pumpkin sees (share them with your neighbors!).
Thoroughly clean and rinse pumpkin seeds and pat dry. Set seeds aside in a mixing bowl.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan and pour over seeds.
Sprinkle salt over mixture to taste.
Spread an even, single layer of seeds on a baking sheet. Bake for approximately 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until seeds are a toasty, golden color.
