Roasting some seeds

This year we decided to roast the seeds from our pumpkins for fun. It was just as easy as I've been told-and super yummy too!!

First the kids scooped out all of the pumpkin goo and seeds and put the seeds into a colander.

After we filled up the colander, I rinsed out the seeds and pulled out any big pieces of pumpkin that were left in the mix.

We preheated the oven to 350 degrees. Peris put the wet seeds on to paper towels and patted them dry. I sprayed an old cookie sheet with cooking spray and then Peris spread out the damp seeds before giving them a good sprinkling of sea salt (I went back over the seeds a second time so they were REALLY salty).

We baked them for about 30 minutes (they turned golden brown) before taking them out of the oven to eat. Even really hot they were awesome!! Fiona loved them until Derek informed her that the seeds really counted as a vegetable-then she wasn't so sure.

Note: We did make a batch with cinnamon and they didn't turn out well. The salty seeds were the way to go. They were really delish!!
