These are very good! I love the combination of sweet and spicy. Yummy and different.

These are delicious (though not exactly healthy!). We'd carved 2 large and 1 small pumpkin, resulting in just over 3 cups of seeds. As a result, I tripled the sugar and spices--NOT necessary! Instead, I think I could have just doubled it. However, since I had the excess already mixed, I used that to carmelize the seeds with the (canola, in my case) oil (instead of adding the extra tablespoons of sugar. It worked well! Can't wait to bring them to my husband at work as a quick pick-me-up!

I substituted more cinnamon & ginger for the cumin and used canola oil. These are yummy!

AWESOME! The best recipe for pumpkin seeds I ever had. We made this for our annual Trick or Treating party and it was a huge hit with adults and kids! I didn't have peanut oil so we used olive oil and they were fantastic...going to buy more pumpkins just to make more!

This was good. I altered the recipe a bit though. Since I didn't have any peanut oil, after they baked in the oven for an hour, I tossed them lightly in 1 Tbs. butter. Then, I tossed them with the spices (which I tasted and they were too sweet for me, so I doubled them) Very good! Thanks!

This recipe is excellent--addictive! I actually found it first through CD kitchen--the version there lists coarse salt instead of salt. I use salt from my grinder, and the seeds never seem too salty to me.

Mmm...what an intriguing flavour! I couldn't stop snacking on these and our 12 yr old who hates everything loved them. I did find them a bit salty although I stuck to the recipe but maybe it was just my tastebuds. I may try an 1/8 th of a teaspoon salt next time and see if it makes a difference. Thanks for a super recipe - nice change from the traditional roasted seeds.

It has become a Halloween favorite, both at home and at the office.

Really good. I would recommend a little less sugar (4 tbsp total) since there is a lot of excess sugar in the bowl, and they are plenty sweet enough! Yum!
