Roasting Pumpkin Seeds are fun to make with the kids in the kitchen! Getting the family involved creates wonderful fond memories for a lifetime!
I am not fond of throwing out a good pumpkin. So after Halloween, the un-carved ones came back into the kitchen to get worked on. It was and still is a tradition in our home.
Roasting pumpkin seeds is real easy! Just separate the seeds from the pulp, rinse and pat dry with a paper towel. Scatter them onto a cookie sheet, add some seasoning and roast them until they are golden.
They make great HEALTHY school snacks for the kids or just set them in a bowl in front of the TV for the whole family to enjoy!
Eat them raw or roasted! They are full of vitamins and minerals, good for everyone! Toss them to your soups and salads, they give a nice crunch and delicious nutty flavor. Enjoy!
