Recipe

Ingredients

  • Seeds from 1 pumpkin, pulp and strings removed
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt, to taste

Directions

1. Spread the seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet, making sure they are thoroughly cleaned of strings and pulp. Let them air-dry for at least 3 hours. Once dry, hull them.

2. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

3. Add the oil and salt to the seeds, and stir to coat them well. Place the baking sheet in the oven and toast, stirring the seeds every 5 minutes or so, until they are golden brown, about 25 minutes. Let the seeds cool, and then taste for salt; add more if necessary.
