Poll: Have You Ever Roasted Pumpkin Seeds? Have You Ever Roasted Pumpkin Seeds? November 9, 2009 by POPSUGAR Food 14 Save 0 Favorite 0 Last week, I made toasted pumpkin seeds for the first time ever, following a two-step boil-and-bake method. They were so crispy and savory, I couldn't believe I'd never done it before, and was already dreaming of making them again. How about you?

EvieJ 4 years I do 2 batches, one salted for the husband and one with chili powder for me. Yum. suziryder 4 years I've never done this! I guess I'll need to experiment. We do have two pumpkins on our porch that were intended to become jack o'lanterns but never did. Hmm... CoconutPie 4 years Yes, every single year when I was a kid. And I did it all by myself. I loved them as much as the Halloween candies. betty kraker 4 years i brine then bake mine i dont like the sweet ones betty kraker 4 years i brine then bake my seeds i dont like the sweet ones notinthemood 4 years You can also do squash seeds... they're also good, but they'll start popping so you have to remove them from the oven when they start popping. As for me, I do a garlic powder/crushed red pepper/habanero tabasco sauce for a really hot, spicy treat! AbbyHintz 4 years I just threw away some seeds last night; looks like I'll have to try this next time. elocin85 4 years I recommend cinnamon/sugar pumpkin seeds. I've never made them myself, but you simmer the seeds in butter and they're awesome. Spectra 4 years I always used to do this when we carved pumpkins and they always turned out great. You have to clean them very well before you roast them and it helps to soak them in salt water first so they get really crunchy. And yeah, you have to toast them for quite a while so that they get done enough...otherwise, they stay kind of chewy and gross. rgrl 4 years Mmmm, yum! I have done it and love them! I never boiled them first though, and they always came out delish. Just leave them in until they start to brown, otherwise they are not ready. shoneyjoe 4 years I used to when I was younger (as a child of immigrants, our family kind of jumped headlong into a lot of American traditions) but I was never quite pleased with the results. Perhaps now that I'm older and know a bit more about what I'm doing. POPSUGAR Food 4 years I put a little creole seasoning in mine...it added so much zing! sarahcateh 4 years so delicious! I make them every time we carve pumpkins. Soniabonya 4 years My mother always roasted pumpkin seeds when we carved our pumpkins. I've been meaning to do the same to the seeds I left on the baking sheet. Maybe I'll do it this time :) You Might Also Like consumerism Nov 06, 2013 Don't Tell Anyone: 11 Secret Starbucks Saving Tips POPSUGAR Food Sep 04, 2008 Salmeterol (By breathing) recipes Dec 17, 2012 65+ Appetizers Perfect For Any Occasion cooking tips Sep 16, 2013 Can You Refreeze Raw Meat After Thawing?
