Tasty pumpkin seeds. I've been doing this since I was a kid with my mom and now make them with my grandkids. They are just plain fun!


  1. Clean pumpkin or squash seeds, soak over night in very salty, warm water.
  2. The more salt the salter the nut!
  3. Drain and spread on Cookie sheet or shallow baking dish.
  4. Roast in a 250 degree oven for 3-6 hours depending on oven and seeds.
  5. Stir every so often.

Digging out the seeds and roasting them was the best time of the event, however, they didn't much care to eat them, that is... my kids. I on the other hand quite enjoyed them.
