Toasted pumpkin seeds

From the Gopher Kitchen:

  1. Remove seeds from pumpkin.
  2. Wash & remove pumpkin bits/fibers.
  3. Rinse.
  4. Spread on towel to dry. (do not use paper towels-you'll get paper bits)
  5. When mostly dry, spread on cookie sheet & let dry all the way. This might be a day or so, depending on how dry/warm your kitchen is.
  6. Put a splash of oil on a cookie sheet. Swish the seeds around in it. Now, this is just a little bit of oil. We're not deep-frying it, just toasting.
  7. Put in over @ 200-250F.
  8. About every 10 min., use spatula & toss seeds to toast evenly.
  9. Remove from oven after about 30 min., or to taste.
  10. Let cool.
  11. Store in air-tight container.

These are really yummy straight out of the oven, warm. Jr.Gopher#2, the total omnivore, likes them too.
