Fall is the time for making one of my favorite seeds to snack on.. Pumpkin seeds are nutritious and delicious plus being an excellent source of Iron, fiber and are rich in vitamins B and E. Try roasting them with salt or experiment with other seasoning blends such as Garlic & Sourcream, Worchestershire, Seasoning Salt or Toss with Ranch dressing mix after roasting or try a Cajun blend for adventurous tastes.
2 cups pumpkin seeds
3 tsp. melted butter or oil (olive oil or vegetable oil work well)
salt to taste
Preheat oven to 300° F.
Clean seeds. It's ok to leave a little of the pulp or strings on the seeds but remove excess. Toss the pumpkin seeds with the melted butter or oil and seasonings. Spread in a single layer on baking sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes, stirring occasionally until lightly golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
