Oven Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
August 11, 2012
"I had pumpkins I needed to use before they wasted and I always keep the seeds. I love them so much but didn't care much for the way they came out. Then I remembered my Grandma's way. I had forgotten she so this time I did it her way and they came out great! This works for any amount of seeds so you don't have to go by my measures. Use your own seasonings for your taste. Prep time is not accurate either because it will depend how long it takes you do the pumpkin. Servings are not accurate either."
