Roasted Garlic Pumpkin Seeds

Roasted Garlic Pumpkin Seeds

This recipe is a childhood favorite and quite possibly the most fun and rewarding part about cleaning out pumpkins for Halloween. We used the seeds from our pumpkins in our Pumpkin Puree Recipe, but you can use the seeds from carving pumpkins too.

Adding a bit of garlic salt intensifies the flavor and makes them irresistible!

Here is how you can make your own:

Uncooked pumpkin seeds with pumpkin "guts."

After cleaning out your pumpkins, you are left with a bit of a mess. Just pick out the big chunks of flesh and stringy parts from the seeds.

Rinse the seeds in a colander until clean.

After the 12 minutes, turn the oven down to 225 degrees and allow to bake for an additional 45 minutes.
