All right! Saved the pumpkin seeds from making Pumpkin Stuffed with Everything Good which means I have a tasty treat ahead. Even though it’s not baseball season (I wish it was always baseball season), pumpkin seeds are a great snack to have around. And very easy to make.
Get the seeds from your pumpkin.
Clean the pumpkin guts off by rinsing the seeds under water in a sieve.
Get some salt. This is smoked Maldon salt.
Add the salt to water. The ratio? About 1 tablespoon of salt to 2 cups of water.
Add the seeds.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to simmer and cook for 10 minutes, then drain.
Put the drained pumpkin seeds on a baking seed, drizzle some olive oil over and roast them.
After 15 minutes in a 400°F oven. I stirred them after 10 minutes in the oven.
Now I will pop my copy of my favourite baseball movie (Eight Men Out) into the DVD player and eat my pumpkin seeds and pretend it is a warm summer afternoon.
