If you've never roasted pumpkin seeds before here are my tips. When you carve your pumpkins scoop the seeds into a colander and the guts onto newspaper. Inevitably some of the guts will be mixed in with the seeds but when you run water over them it's separated out pretty easily. After you drain the rinsed seeds, pour them onto a large, dry cookie sheet and let them sit for 24 hours or so to dry out. Now you can pick out the remaining pieces of pumpkin stuff that didn't get pulled out earlier and they will roast better if they are not wet when they go in the oven. My family prefers them seasoned with garlic salt in place of regular salt but you can use whatever suits your taste. So good!

These were delicious!! I did make the following adjustments per other reviews: 1) I boiled the seeds in salted water for 20 minutes (it really does clean the seeds well,) 2) I then laid them out on a cookie sheet overnight to dry, 3) The next morning I mixed them with 1 tablespoon salt, 1 tablespoon melted butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil and 4) I spread the coated seeds on a cookie sheet and baked them for 30 minutes at 300 degrees. They were perfect!!!!

Hi I am Joseph I found out when you bake the seeds with oil & salt the salt is on the outside and not on the inside. I boil mine in a strong salt water till they look gray then I drain then I put them on Cooke sheet and bake them at 250 deg until drythank you Joseph M aka joscrazym Butler Pa.
