Just a few days to go before you carve those pumpkins. When you do carve them, save the seeds! They make a delicious and healthy snack. It's also incredibly easy to roast the seeds, which makes it a great Act 2 for you and your kids after creating those award-winning pumpkin designs. And you only need two ingredients besides the pumpkin seeds...just a little butter and salt.
1 1/2 cups raw pumpkin seeds
2 teaspoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 300º.
- Toss seeds in a bowl with the melted butter and salt. Spread the seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for about 45 minutes or until golden brown; stir occasionally.
