  1. Carve your pumpkins and gather their seeds!
  2. Measure 1-2 cups of fresh raw seeds, and rinse them well in a colander with cold water. Take your time to remove all the slime! Once this is done, towel dry them and put them in a bowl. Set your over to 300
  3. Melt 3 tablespoons of butter, and pour the melted butter over the seeds in the bowl. Mix well, making sure the seeds get nice and covered with the butter.
  4. Sprinkle a pinch of sea salt in the bowl and mix that in too.
  5. On a flat baking sheet, place a piece of tin foil, and evenly spread your seeds on the foil. Sprinkle again with a few more pinches of sea salt.
  6. Bake in your over at 300 for 45 minutes, toss occasionally. The seeds are done when golden brown and crunchy! Enjoy!

If you don't want to make them, you can buy them!

      Hi Cam8510, I do think the foil helps brown them more (and quicker), just don't get tempted to go overboard with the butter, or they get soggy afterward. Thanks for your comment! :)

      I love baking pumpkin seeds. We did it with our sons for many years. We just put them on a cookie sheet to bake. Do you think the foil browns them better and more evenly? Thanks for the hub.
