Pumpkin Seeds

Salted & Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

During my 12:30 am carving venture I decided to toast some of the seeds.
I scooped out all of the seeds and washed them in cold water. (Slimey)
After washing all of the seeds several times, which was so therapeutic / amusing at the time, of all orange pumpkin strings and gunk - dried them off with a paper towel.
Laid out all seeds on a thin baking pan lined with foil.
Heavily used sea salt to sprinkle seeds on both sides.
375 degrees - 20 mins or until toasted brown.
