If you are roasting pie pumpkins to make your own pumpkin purée, you can save the seeds and roast them for a healthy and delicious snack.
Toasting the seeds is easy. The only hard part is cleaning them after removing them from the pumpkin.
Cut a pie pumpkin in half, scoop out the seeds and clean them.
Spread the pumpkin seeds out on a buttered cookie sheet and season to roast.
Clean the seeds and put them on a buttered cookie sheet. Salt or flavor them how you like and bake in a 400 degree F. oven until lightly browned. This doesn't take long, maybe 5-15 minutes or so depending on the size of the seeds.
