Pumpkin Seeds

To bake pumpkin seeds, you’ll want to preheat your oven to around 300-325°F (150-160°C). Here’s a simple recipe to follow:

  1. Clean the Seeds: Remove the seeds from the pumpkin, and rinse them thoroughly to remove any pulp and strings.

  2. Boil and Salt: Boil the seeds in salted water for about 10 minutes. This helps to soften the seeds and infuse them with flavor. Use about 2-3 tablespoons of salt per 2 cups of seeds.

  3. Dry: Drain the seeds and pat them dry with a paper towel or kitchen towel.

  4. Savory Season: Toss the seeds in a bit of oil (like vegetable or olive oil) and salt, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne OR Sweet Season: Toss the seeds in a bit of coconut oil with chocolate, honey, nutmeg, and cinammon.

  5. Bake: Spread the seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-30 minutes, or until they’re golden brown and crispy. Be sure to stir or shake the seeds on the baking sheet every 10 minutes for even cooking. OR Airfry: Put in for 15 minutes @ 350.

  6. Cool: Let the roasted pumpkin seeds cool before enjoying.

Remember that cooking times can vary depending on your oven and the size and thickness of the seeds, so keep a close eye on them to prevent burning.
