Anyone ever mess with them? They're a tradition around our house. We have a bucket full of candy at the house, and these are what I keep coming back for.



1) Scoop out the innards of the pumpkins, separating the seeds out
2) Cover the seeds in a brine (flavored with your choice of seasonings), and bring to a boil.
3) Let water boil for about 5 minutes, then remove pot from heat.
4) Soak seeds until water cools.
5) Drain & lightly rinse seeds in a collander
6) Evenly spread seeds on a cookie sheet & bake in 300 degree oven until crisp (bonus points if you can use a convection fan). Stir them around every 15 minutes or so to keep them separated and to ensure even cooking. Take them out just before they really start turning golden colored.

My son loves them...but we didn't roast any this year. I was In South Dakota when they murdered the pumpkins.

My wife soaked the seeds in a brine overnight. Apparently, that's supposed to make them more digestible.

That's just the way I did it.....start the boil at 8:30, it's not cool when I'm ready for bed, so they sat in the pot all night.
