Pumpkin Seeds

Happy Halloween! WOW, here in the Northeast, NJ especially we've gotten a White Halloween! So strange to have snow in October for Halloween. My tot & I picked our large, gorgeous pumpkin off of the porch to allow "Jack" to defrost ;) & to carve him. Boy how is it I forget how seriously slimy, squishy & gross those orange innards are every year till that first handful?! And this year, they were freezing cold to boot! 

Don't throw those seeds out when you carve your Jack O'Lantern!!! They are the best kept secret for some. Roast them & toss 'em with spices & you have the best snack! Stay safe out there y'all!!!

Pumpkin Seeds

  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Sea Salt

Rinse the seeds under cold water in a colander & pick out the pulp, goo & strings. 

Place the pumpkin seeds in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Jack's saying, "Snow?!"
Sprinkle with sea salt & bake at 300 degrees F until toasted, about 30 minutes, checking & stirring after 10 minutes.


  1. We did the same thing today too! I left them out overnight to dry, and they turned out crunchier than ever.
