Pumpkin Seeds: Roast 'Em!

As you prepare to carve your Halloween masterpiece, don't forget to save the seeds.

I know, yuck!

But it's a great snack the kids (and you) can enjoy for a day or two.

I ago for the the classic roasted pumpkin seed, myself:  just clean, salt, and bake.  But if you're more creative (the kind of person who thinks of adding candy corn to popcorn, for example), or adventuresome, there are lots of other choices.

Go Spicy!
In addition to a little salt, sprinkle chili powder and garlic powder on your seeds.

Go Sweet!
What about skipping the salt altogether?  For a sweeter seed, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Get Crazy!
Just open your spice cupboard and think about the flavors you like.  Mix and match, or make a few different batches.

Whatever you choose to add, Roasted Pumpkin Seeds are a great fall treat.  Heat a little cider, light a fire, and you're practically guaranteed a happy day!
