Cooking with Kids Thursday: Pumpkin Seeds

Growing up, I remember that part of carving pumpkins was always getting to eat the seeds afterwards.  I never really paid any attention to how my parents roasted the seeds, but I was always more than eager to be the taste tester.  Flash foward several years later and now I am the one carving pumpkins with my kids.  I have all the seeds, but haven’t a clue what to do with them.  So, I did a little searching and found two very yummy recipes for preparing pumpkin seeds.  Enjoy!

Here is what you will need to make Sweet and Salty Pumpkin Seeds:

-2 cups separated and dried pumpkin seeds (from your jack-o’-lantern)
