Pumpkin Seeds with Cinnamon and Salt

Pumpkin Seeds with Cinnamon and Salt


"This is a nice twist to pumpkin seeds. Every year I host a pumpkin carve and make this variety of pumpkin seeds, and everyone goes wild for the cinnamon flavor with the salt. Use the seasonings to taste--the amounts really depend upon how many seeds you get from your pumpkins."
