Well today we started the process of carving our pumpkin. (I hope it lasts until Halloween) After I washed the outside of the pumpkin we cut open the top. We pulled out all the seeds and the rest of the inside of the pumpkin. I rinsed the seeds in water and then strained them through colander and rinsed again. After this I laid them out on a greased baking sheet. I baked them on 300 degrees for about 15 minutes. Then I took them out.
Next, I mixed 1/2 the seeds with olive oil and ground sea salt. I also wanted a sweet option so I mixed the other 1/2 with vegetable oil, cinnamon, and sugar. Then I returned them to the oven where I baked them another 15 minutes.
They came out great. This is a fun fall snack and activity for you to do when carving your pumpkin.
How do you like to make your pumpkin seeds? How are you going to carve your pumpkin?
