Now that we live in Ohio, we can go pick pumpkins and enjoy the tasty treat of pumpkin seeds! Meijer has great seeds, but for when you want your own, here is a simple recipe:
Cut a hole at the top of the pumpkin. Scoop out the inside and pull off the seeds. This takes a while! Boil a pot of water and salt generously. Add the seeds and let simmer for a few minutes. Drain the seeds and lay them flat on a paper towel to dry.
Spray a cookie sheet with Pam. Spread the seeds out in a single layer on the sheet. Brush seeds with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake at 400 for about 15 minutes or until seeds are crunchy. You can try baking at 350 for 20-25 minutes if you want. It depends on how crunchy you want them!
