Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

I love fall. I love the crisp cool air, the rustling of the leaves and all the all actitivies; like going to the pumpkin patch. Last weekend we went and picked out pumpkins. One of the best things about fresh pumpkins is the seeds. Each year I try a few different varieties of spices. Usually one sweet and one salty. And this year we had plenty to roast. 

Before you add any flavors to your seeds, you want to dry them out. You can either set them out for about 24 hours on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, or roast them in the oven for about 350 degrees for an hour. 


After they are dried out, then you can add the different spices.
