cooking with rosie: roasted pumpkin seeds

this is a great recipe for the left over seeds you get after carving a pumpkin and its so easy to do. it's literally made up of 3 steps and they make an amazing tasting, heathy snack.

you will need:
pumpkin seeds
salt

1. place all of the pumpkin seeds on a tray and sprinkle with salt. place in the oven at about 200C. they should take around 10-15 mins but keep watching to be sure.

2. when the seeds turn a golden brown they are done and can be taken out of the oven.

3. transfer into a sealable container for storage.
if salt isn't to your taste you could easily make honey pumpkin seeds for something sweeter. simply mix a little honey with hot water (amount of honey can vary according to taste, you can also add a little sugar if you would like it sweeter) using a pastry brush coat the seeds in the honey mixture and then cook as above.

are you a fan of pumpkin seeds? how do you use the 'waste' bits of pumpkin?
