These roasted pumpkin seeds are dropped at you by fall. We must benefit from the easy issues like pumpkins.
I am going somewhat nuts after I see the pumpkins present up at farm stands, Trader Joe’s, and my native grocery store. I simply need to hug them!! (and purchase them earlier than I hug them)

Any pumpkin makes nice pumpkin seeds for roasting!

When you might be carving your pumpkin, use a bowl to gather seeds and stringy components. Do not throw this out! Get your youngsters to select the seeds.
You don’t must get the entire goop off (pumpkin guts) of the seeds earlier than you roast them. Just take off the massive chunks. The strands of pumpkin add to the flavour and texture of your seeds.
This is what mine seem like earlier than I put them within the oven:
Pumpkin seeds are nutritious (ex: 28% of your DV of Iron in 1/4 cup) and they're straightforward to prepare dinner. The enjoyable a part of roasting pumpkin seeds is that you may customise the flavour.
Below, I've included a recipe that goes to the candy facet of the style spectrum. Add some cayenne and you'll have a spicy and salty snack.
You may attempt pumpkin spice, pepper, curry powder..… Whatever your favourite spice flavors – simply toss them on the seeds. I recommend attempting 1/2 teaspoon for one cup of pumpkin seeds to begin since you may overwhelm them with spices.
