pumpkin seeds 2 ways

carving pumpkins is awesome and all, but let's not forget how delicious their seeds are too!

      For Salty:                                                                             For Sweet:            
  • pumpkin seeds
  • sea salt
  • ground pepper (optional)
  • pumpkin seeds
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs. cinnamon
  • 1/2 Tbs. nutmeg
  • 1/2 Tbs. pumpkin pie spice

1. After carving your pumpkin, separate the seeds from the rest of the pumpkin goo
2. While the oven is heating up to 400° F, rinse the seeds off under water & pat them dry
3. Spread the seeds on a baking sheet, toss well with your desired seasoning & place them in the hot oven
4. After 10 minutes, check on your seeds- give them a toss with a little more salt or sweet, and pop them back in the oven again
5. After another 10 minutes take out the seeds & give them a taste. If you like your seeds crispier, bake them a little longer, until they're the perfect golden brown.

A tasty, healthy snack to balance out all the candy you're gobbling down right now. Happy Halloween! :)
