With fall here, and Halloween just around the corner, I thought I'd share with you a recipe for Pumpkin Seeds. We use this recipe every year when we carve our pumpkins into jack o'lanterns. (Pictures of those will go up soon- after we get the pumpkins and carve them, that is!)
Special thanks goes to my friend Terry "With-a-Y" for the recipe!
Toasted Pumpkin Seeds
Preheat oven to 300
2 cups seeds, well washed
3 cups cold water
1/2 cup salt
In a large pot, mix water and salt, stirring to dissolve. Add seeds and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 1/2 an hour. Remove from heat and drain. DO NOT RINSE. Spread evenly on a cookie sheet. Cook for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Look in on them in the last ten minutes to be sure they don't overcook. They will be a light golden brown.) Store in a dry place.
Hope you enjoy!
