Post Halloween project: Pumpkin Seeds!

Pumpkin seeds!

Hopefully you didn't throw them out. Or, maybe you can use this recipe when you make all those delicious pumpkin pies later this month.

collect seed from pumpkin, removing pumpkin flesh and strings. Rinse well. drain. dissolve 1/4 cup salt into 2 quarts of water in a bowl. soak seeds in salted water for at least four hours. drain well. preheat oven to 300*. Spread in an even layer over a sheet pan and roast until dry and toasty, about 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes to ensure even roasting. Enjoy!
and just for fun, the pumpkins whose seeds are pictured above.
