Homemade Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Monday, November 25th, 2013

I always knew one could make homemade pumpkin seeds from a pumpkin but I never tried to do it until now. I figured, since I bought a pumpkin for fall decoration, this would be a good time to crack it open and really get my money’s worth.

This recipe is very simple. The hardest task is cutting the pumpkin. Check out what I did below.

After  de-seeding the medium sized fruit this is what I had to work with.

I took the time to pull the seeds off of the pumpkin gup and cleaned them thoroughly using a range of hot to warm water.

The seeds were boiled in salt water for 10 minutes.

Place the seeds on a kitchen towel and lightly pat dry.

Put the seeds on a baking sheet. Drizzle 1 teaspoon of oil of your choice and salt to taste. I used 1 teaspoon of fine sea salt and that was too much for me. Ultimately I wiped some of the sea salt off. But if you like salt use as much as you want.

Incorporate the oil and seeds. Bake at 325 degrees in a preheated oven for 10 minutes.

And that’s it! They turned out to be very tasty!
