Great recipe! Pumpkin seeds are awesome - I can't believe I ever wasted them! So this recipe is great as is. If this is your first time, do it this way - super good. If you are iffy, split them in half and do half one way and the other another way! No worries! Two sheets in the same oven, hell! 300 degrees and and 45 minutes are about perfect for any batch. It is the before stuff that people are discussing, and that is "just to taste" things. Some people boil beforehand - I did it once and didn't taste the difference. I say, screw it, right from the pumpkin: a little pumpkin gut is not a crisis - some butter, some salt, maybe some garlic salt, maybe some chili powder, whatever - mix it up in a bowl, throw them on a pan, rake 'em around until you are happy. (I actually just put the seeds straight from the pumpkin with a little bit o' guts still on them in a bowl, put a clump of butter in the middle, and nuke for a minute or two to melt the butter). Then I mix up whatever I want (typically garlic salt and Johnny's seasoning) until I feel like it looks right. Throw it on the pan, give it a whirl occasionally between discussing pumpkin carvings, and when they look all crispy and golden, call it good! :D
