  • 2 cups pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or butter
  • salt to taste


  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Using a spoon, scrape the pulp and seeds out of your pumpkin into a bowl.
  • Separate the seeds from the stringy pulp by rinsing the seeds in a colander under cold water. Then shake dry. Don't blot with paper towels; the seeds will stick.
  • Spread the seeds in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes to dry them out.
  • Toss the seeds with olive oil, salt and your choice of spices.
  • Return to the oven and bake until crisp and golden, about 20 more minutes.
