How to Roast Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin lattes, bread, cookies, carving and painting are the many ways we celebrate everything pumpkin during fall. Roasting pumpkin seeds brings back memories of childhood, separating the gooey pumpkin from the seeds just before carving our jack-o-lantern faces. There are hundreds of different ways to roast and season this perfect healthy snack, I’m sharing the most traditional way that results in a wonderful, lightly salted and crispy seed every time. What a beautiful time of year to enjoy the simple things in life. Wishing you a happy Fall, whether you celebrate with pumpkin everything, bonfires, smores, warm soup, squash, apple picking, haunted houses or jumping in leaves.

The perfect holiday tradition to start with your little ones. They will have so much fun getting messy and sticking there hands in the pumpkin guts to find all the seeds!
