After slicing up the pumpkin for our beer yesterday, I washed off the seeds & soaked them for 2-3 hours in a brine (4 cups water, 1/2 cup dissolved salt).<br><br><br><br>
I roasted them in the oven at 225F for about 90 minutes.<br><br><br><br>
And can't stop eating them!<br><br><br><br>
we used a pie pumpkin, so the seeds are a bit smaller than those of a jack o'lantern, and eating them shell & all isn't an issue at all. So much better than having to shell the suckers!!

Yummy! A trick I learned is to pour salt right over the unwashed seeds, then rub them with your hands. The salt works as an abrasive to get the gunk off a lot more quickly than just water.

Mmmmm, that sounds great. We just bought 5 pumpkins yesterday. (Gotta love Harry's sale at 4 bucks each - these things are huge for that price!) Though, I think the seeds will be too big to try your recipe above.<br><br><br><br>
Btw, I also love the raw green ones I get from my HFS. In fact, I just used them in place of pine nuts to make my pesto from the 3 huge basil plants I had in the garden. Yum! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/lick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lick:">

Where do you get the pumpkin seeds to try different flavors? I think this pumpkin for the beer was the first one I've bought in years. I guess I could ask coworkers to bring in seeds from jackolanterns

When you guys use the seasonings, you're putting them on the seeds that still have shells, right? So when you eat them, do you eat the shells too?<br><br><br><br>
I find that you have to peel the jack o'lantern seeds because they're not really edible (too sharp and "hay" ish). But the seeds from this little pie pumpkin are edible, shells & all. mmm!

You can also roast the seeds from butternut and acorn squash if you use those more frequently. They're small like the seeds from pie pumpkins, so you don't have to peel them like you do with the big pumpkin seeds.

I thought that was a winter squash? The seeds should still be edible, but don't quote me on that.

OregonAmy: Yes, I just put the seasoning right on the shells and eat the whole thing-shell and all. Before I put the seasoning on I put a tiny bit of canola oil on the seeds and mix them up so the seasoning sticks.<br><br><br><br>
I recently found that Trader Joes sells packages of shelled pumpkin seeds. Beats spending an hour picking seeds out of a pumpkin!
