1½ cups pumpkin seeds
2 Tbsp olive oil or non-stick cooking spray
1 tsp salt
Separate seeds from pulp and strings. Rinse in water and pat dry.
Toss dried seeds in olive oil and place in a single layer on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. (Or lay flat on baking sheet and spritz with cooking spray.) Season with salt.
Place in 325º F oven, stirring often to ensure even browning until a pleasant aroma is apparent (approx. 25 min.).
Remove immediately and transfer to pan or plate to cool. May be stored in air-tight container for a few days.
