Just finished carving our pumpinks and the kids couldn't wait for the roasted seeds!

Here it is- add or delete ingredients to your liking.

SWEET SPICY PUMPKIN SEEDS
To roast your pumpkin seeds, do not wash them first! Washing removes all the natural flavor. Instead, remove the seeds from the strings and place a single layer on a cookie sheet smeared with olive or peanut oil. Try and make an even layer, the less they lay on each other, the better they can bake.


You can also spice them up by mixing 5 tablespoons sugar, 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger, Pinch cayenne pepper or to taste, and 1 1/2 tablespoons peanut (or olive) oil.  In a medium bowl combine 3 tablespoons of the sugar and the salt, cumin, cinnamon, ginger,  and cayenne. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add pumpkin seeds (after baked) and 2 tablespoons sugar. Cook until sugar melts and the pumpkin seeds begin to caramelize, about 45 to 60 seconds. Transfer to bowl with spices and stir well to coat. Let cool.

MMMmmm!

MM-MMM!

how are the seeds?!

No pumpkins seeds this year.  Maybe next year.  Heck, we only got 25 trick or treaters to our door this year.  A far cry from our rocord of 109.

Actually, I screwed it up this year.
While trying to spice it up just a tad using a different technique, I went with some Montreal Chicken seasoning.
Just a couple of quick shakes.......
Problem was, it contained garlic.
The seeds were nice and sweet, as always...with a little kick from the red pepper, but it left an aftertaste of garlic and nothing else.
That's what I get for not reading the label.....HA

Funny thing was, you would never know it while eating them- they were delicious! Then the finish.....
All I heard from the wife was "What is that lingering taste at the end??"

 :shock:

As well, my comment back didn't go over well anyway.
Something like "Where have I heard that before?"
Still getting cross looks for that one.
