Roasting the unhulled seeds you get from a whole pumpkin makes a perfect snack for a pumpkin-carving party. Use your fingers to rake the seeds free from the strands of pumpkin fiber. If you prefer your pumpkin seeds sweet or spicy, see the variations for more flavor options.
Make Ahead Tips
Roasted pumpkin seeds will keep for several days stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
Sprinkle the seeds with chili powder, smoked paprika, curry powder, or another favorite spice before roasting. Or for a sweet treat, toss with cinnamon-sugar after roasting.

Love roasting pumpkin seeds!!! Agree with the other rating...leave some of the goo on. I like oil, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and some ground pepper!!! I also roast a long time and stir stir stir!!
So easy & so good for you! Be sure to leave some of the fiber w/ the seeds for flavor. Don't be tempted to "wash" the seeds. Just rake the seeds w/ your fingers through the pumpkin goo.
