Pumpkin Seeds


It's a tradition at my house to save the seeds of the Halloween pumpkins we carve at Halloween and then bake them for a tasty treat. I have tried several different recipes for pumpkin seeds, and so far this one is my favorite.

Pumpkin Seeds

1 1/2 c. pumpkin seeds
4 c. water
4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 Tbs. olive oil
3 Tbs. butter
3 1/2 Tbs. soy sauce*
Lawry's Seasoned Salt
Preheat oven to 350°.
Rinse seeds until no pumpkin is left on them.
Boil the water and salt in a large pot. Simmer seeds for 10 minutes. Drain water. Add olive oil, butter, and soy sauce.
Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray or line it with parchment paper. Spread seeds out on the cookie sheet so they are not on top of each other. Sprinkle with seasoned salt. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool before eating.

Betsy's Pumpkin Seed Recipe: Clean most of the goop off the seeds, but don't rinse them. Place on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with salt and bake.
