Should have read the negative reviews before I tried this recipe. 300 degrees for 45 minutes is way too hot for too long.
Washed the seeds thoroughly and allowed to dry for 36 hours before I roasted them. Tossed them with the 2 teaspoons of melted butter and a generous pinch of salt. My oven is accurate and if anything runs a bit cool. Set the timer for 15 minutes to stir them and they were already browned. After 30 minutes they were beginning to smell burnt. I turned the oven down to 250 and left them for another 5 minutes.
After cooling they taste overly browned...almost burnt. The shells are so over baked that they crumble instead of split. It's easier to eat the entire seed, shell and all...but the taste isn't good.
Suggest turning your oven down to 250 and baking a little longer. I will also try what others have suggested and boil the seeds first in salted water, allow to dry and then roast. These had virtually no flavor...unless you like burnt.
