Do we shell them? They don't look like the pumpkin seeds you buy already roasted! I mean are we suppose to eat the shells????

Hey! We found a cool way to clean seeds. Use your fingers to remove pulpy stuff than put them into a salad spinner with a bit of water. Than spin away. Remove the basket of the spinner with seeds change your water and spin again. It worked really well, and its a fun step!

Do not waist time "cleaning" or washing the inner parts of the pumpkin. All that stuff roasts together with the seeds using any of the recipes above and makes it taste even better by adding soft, crunchy texture, which is easier on the palate than the ruff texture of the pumpkin shell. I never throw away any of the soft inner part of any gourd - just roast it with butter or oil and salt and eat it.

This method doesn't work for me. I used to roast them like this but none of my seasonings, especially the salt, ever stuck to the seed. After rinsing, I pour the wet seeds into a bowl and add my seasonings. I even add a few teaspoons of water to help the salt dissolve before I place in the oven. No oil is necessary but is optional for taste. The seasonings are endless. I've made mine with a few sprinkles of Worcestershire sauce and salt, vinegar and salt, chili, salt, and lime. I make these every year when we carve the pumpkin and the kids love it. I use the same method to roast pinon. These can even be made in the microwave to save time, although they do come out better in the oven. For roasting in the microwave, I use the method I mentioned above. I place a napkin over the bowl and place in the microwave at a high setting for about two minutes. Stir. Put back in for another two minutes. Stir. Check. After the second time I put the bowl in the microwave at 30 second interval

I just made this recipe with my 7 year old. He watched the video and was able to do everything!! He was very surprised that he could make cinnamon and sugar flavored seeds. Before I watched the video, I was going to let the seeds dry out for 24 hours. Instead, we rinsed the seeds in a collander and then dried them with paper towels. I sprayed the seeds with a vegetable oil spray and then added the seasonings. We did one batch of cinnamon/sugar and one batch using seasoned salt. Both batches came out perfect!!
