A few days ago I roasted some pumpkin seeds for the first time. Pumpkin seeds are supposed to be a very healthy snack. They were pretty tasty, although next time I might try seasoned salt. I am proud to say I used a pumpkin from my garden (instead of letting it get really really old and too far gone to use and then just giving it to the chickens, which I have done maybe once... okay, alot). I also roasted the pumpkin halves and froze the flesh to use in bread or pie! Yum!
First I cut the pumpkin in half.
Then I scooped out the seeds.
First rinse. I manually separated the pulp from the seeds.
Laid them on a kitchen towel to dry. Picked out remaining pulp.
I baked them at 300 for about 45 minutes. Stirred them again. Baked another 5 minutes.
Here is the final product:
