 Roasting Pumpkin Seeds

Rinse pumpkin seeds under cold water and remove all of the pulp and strings. 

Place the pumpkin seeds in a single layer on an oiled baking sheet, moving them around with a flat utensil to coat. If you want to eleminate some calories use a non-stick cooking spray instead of the oil.

Sprinkle with salt and bake at 325 degrees F until toasted, about 25 minutes, check and stir after 10 minutes.

Let cool and store in an air-tight container till ready to eat.

You can spice these up using your favorite spices.
