This was fast and easy...I put more than a pinch of salt in the butter and I don't think it was still enough. I like them really salty! Thanks for the recipe. My son and husband carved pumpkins and we wanted to try roasting the seeds this year. I'm glad we did! It will be a tradition from now on...thanks again..

MIL made these when she came to visit. She boils her seeds first to get all the junk off, but other than that, she followed the recipe the same way. Great for any pumpkin seed lover!
