Ingredients:

How to Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° and place the rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Slice the pumpkin open by cutting a circle around the stem with a sharp knife, with the knife blade angled in, and pull the top off.
  3. Use a strong metal spoon to scrape out the insides of the pumpkin, place the seeds into a colander and throw the pulp away.
  4. Run the seeds under water to rinse and separate them from any remaining pulp. It's OK to leave some strings and pulp on your seeds {it adds flavor} just be sure to clean off any major chunks.
  5. Shake any remaining water from the calendar, and toss the pumpkin seeds into a bowl with the oil and seasonings of your choice.
  6. Roast for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally {so that they roast evenly} until crisp and golden. Check often towards the end, smaller seeds will roast more quickly while larger seeds may take a little longer.
