Fall is here, and it's time to learn the easy way to roast pumpkin seeds. My mom's tradition of pumpkin seed roasting continues, and I'll show you the straightforward process to transform these seeds into a tasty snack. No more wasting those seeds – let's get roasting!

Start by cutting the top off the pumpkin and scoop out all the seeds.
Step 2: Seed Cleanup
Rinse the seeds and remove any remaining pumpkin residue.
Step 3: Drying Time
Place the seeds on a towel to dry and pat them dry.
Step 4: Seasoning Sensation
Step 5: Bake to Perfection
Spread the seasoned seeds on a baking sheet, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and bake for 20-30 minutes, tossing them occasionally. For extra crispiness, use the broiler on low until they turn golden brown.
Keep your roasted pumpkin seeds in an airtight container, and they'll remain fresh for 2-3 weeks. These seeds are not just a tasty snack; they're rich in fiber and zinc, making them an excellent on-the-go snack.
