Pumpkin Seeds in 5 Easy Steps!
It’s no surprise that it’s pumpkin season and some of us are carving away at our pumpkins trying to come up with cute and creative decorations for the fall. Well, you know what they say: “Don’t throw away those seeds!” Truth be told, I haven’t been a pumpkin carver for long, but if there’s anything I’ve learned about pumpkin carving, it’s to not let the delicious pumpkin seeds inside go to waste. They make a healthy snack that is downright addicting. Not to mention, you can make them in 5 simple and easy steps…
Around this time last year, my co-blogger asked “What is the RIGHT way to roast pumpkin seeds?“and I have to tell you, this is it!
For those of you who prefer the text version, here is the recipe:
These are the best pumpkin seeds I have ever tasted and they were so easy to make!
1-2 Tbs. sea salt
enough water for soaking
2 C. pumpkin seeds
While carving your pumpkin, collect the seeds in a separate bowl or colander. Try to remove as much of the stringy pumpkin goop from them as possible.
Place seeds in strainer or colander and rinse of all excess pumpkin goop. Salt the bottom of a small bowl. Pour in some pumpkin seeds. Top with more salt. Continue to layer pumpkin seeds and salt. Fill bowl to top with water and let seeds soak overnight.
The next day, preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray. Spread soaked seeds onto baking sheet. Bake for 45 minutes.
