One of the best things about Halloween when I was a kid was the pumpkin seeds baking while we were finishing up the details on the carving. Serving size depends on the pumpkin

I have tried baking pumpkin seeds several different ways but had never boiled them first -- it makes a big difference that my whole family liked. Thanks!
