Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

 Pumpkin Seeds

Supplies: Pumpkin seeds from one pumpkin, a little salt, a bowl, paper towels, 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, and a cookie sheet.

  1. Cut your pumpkin open and scoop out all of the seeds.  Rinse them with water to remove all of the stringy stuff.  Spread the seeds out on paper towels for a few hours until they are dry.
  2. Once the seeds are dry, preheat your oven to 250 degrees F.
  3. Put the seeds in the bowl and add the oil and a little salt.  Mix it all together.
  4. Spread the seeds evenly in one layer on a cookie sheet and bake for about an hour.  Stir the seeds around every fifteen minutes.
  5. Let your seeds cool a little bit before you start eating them.
