With Autumn approaching, I started looking at some of my favorite recipes for the season. Pumpkin bread, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, fall soups and the list goes on!! Lol!! One simple recipe that I found in my recipe box is roasting pumpkin seeds!! Quick and easy to do, they make a fantastic fall snack to have especially during football season!!!
To state the obvious, you need to get a fresh pumpkin and have some olive oil and salt on hand.
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Using a spoon, scrape the pulp and seeds out of your pumpkin into a bowl. Then clean the seeds.
Then you need to dry the seeds. Spread the seeds in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet and roast 30 minutes to dry them out.
Now add some spices. One idea is to toss the seeds with olive oil, salt and your choice of spices. Return to the oven and bake until crisp and golden, about 20 more minutes. For a something sweet, toss them with cinnamon and sugar.
