Number of Servings: 6


    1 quart water
    2 cups raw pumpkin seeds
    2 tbsp salt
    1 tbsp vegetable oil or butter melted


Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Pick through seeds and remove and cut seeds. Remove as much of the stringy fibers as possible. Bring the water and salt to a boil. Add the seeds and boil for 10 minutes. Drain, spread on kitchen towel or paper towel and pat dry. Place the seeds in a bowl and toss with oil or melted butter. Spread evenly on a large cookie sheet or roasting pan. Place pan in a preheated oven and roast the seeds for 30 to 40 minutes. Stir about every 10 minutes, until crisp and golden brown. Cool the seeds, then shell and eat or pack into an air tight container or zip closure bags and refrigerate until ready to eat.

    This recipe is FABULOUS! I did cook them over an hour at 250 degrees to get them nice and crisp, but boiling them in the salt water made them taste great! I added some sea salt after I placed them on the cookie sheet.....just to add a little more flavor, and baked them about 1hr & 15min. TASTY! - 10/29/08
