How To Bake Pumpkin Seeds
Pumpkin seeds are one of my favorite fall snacks. I love sticking my hand in the pumpkin and pulling out the gooey guts and slimy seeds. I am going to show you how to make delicious, crispy pumpkin seeds.
I like to go out side to carve pumpkins. I get one bowl for the seeds and one bowl for the parts of the pumpkin I will not be using.
Carve and gut the pumpkin.
Let the seeds soak for about 10 minutes and then clean out the guts. It doesn't need to be perfect.
Drain the water.
Add 1 tablespoon olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
Let the seeds marinate for about 15 minutes.
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. Spread the seeds on a cookie sheet.
Place in the oven for about 30 minutes. Make sure to keep an eye on the seeds and turn once or twice so they don't burn. Take the seeds out of the oven when they turn golden-brown and are crispy.
Store in a glass container for snacking. They won't last long. :)
I love to cook, sew, tie flies, hike, fish, cross country ski, and spend time with the ones I love. I want to share my sewing, cooking, and adventures with everyone. It's more fun that way.
