Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

As you carve your pumpkins into blood-chilling designs, don’t throw out the seeds. You can turn those seeds into a scrumptious Halloween treat. Here’s a Halloween recipe I recently found that will surely bring you some delight.

The first thing you’ll need to do is separate the goo and guts from the actual seeds. But don’t rinse away all the goo, as it adds flavor to the seeds.

Next, place the seeds in a mixing bowl and add some melted butter: 1 tablespoon for every 2 cups of seeds. Add salt or other preferred seasoning: 1 teaspoon for every 2 cups. For example, you could try one of these tasty seasoning mixes:

* Spicy Garlic Mix: 1 tbs of garlic powder, 1 tsp salt and ½ tsp cayenne pepper.
* Southwestern Mix: 2 tsp cumin, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp salt and ½ tsp cayenne pepper.
* Sweet and Spicy Mix: ¼ cup sugar, 1 tsp salt and ½ tsp cayenne pepper.

Toss the seeds, butter and selected seasoning thoroughly to combine. Then spread the pumpkin seeds on an ungreased baking sheet in a thin layer.

Roast the seeds in an oven at 300° F for about 30 minutes. Stir them after 15 minutes so the sides toast evenly. Take them out, cool them, and serve with a cool refreshing drink.
