The Humble Pumpkin Seed The seeds of pumpkins are often over looked when used in cooking, but they can be a delicious treat when roasted.

Stellar--the salt soak does wonders! I also appreciate the quick bake time (unlike another soak'n'roast recipe on here that called for 3-6 hours in the oven!). I use butternut squash seeds instead of pumpkin, since I rarely cook pumpkin.
Directions See How It's Made
- After removing seeds from pumpkin clean them up.
- Soak them in salty water for about eight hours, drain on a paper towel and roast them on a baking sheet at 350° for 15 to 20 minutes.
- Be sure to stir them frequently.
- When you bite into them or crack them open, you'll find a tasty kernel inside.
