Recipe: Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

So you go to carve a pumpkin and you first cut out all the guts and throw it all away. Wait… we can use some of the guts. The seeds, once separated from the rest of the guts, are quite tasty when roasted in an oven.



  • 1 ½ cups whole, raw pumpkin seeds
  • 2 teaspoons of butter
  • Pinch of salt



Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Then, in a large bowl, mix seeds with butter and salt until all seeds are covered. Spread the seeds in a single layer on a baking sheet and (after the oven is preheated) place in the oven for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Stir the seeds occasionally while baking.
