The "hidden" snack inside your Halloween pumpkin
Families

If you’re carving up a pumpkin for Halloween, you’ve got a great snack just begging to be made!  The seeds inside the pumpkin are delicious when baked.  Sure you can purchase pumpkin seeds at most grocery stores, but it’s more fun to make your own!

Scoop the seeds from the pumpkin and place in a colander.  Thoroughly wash and remove all the stringy fiber from around the seeds.  This takes time—be patient!  Once cleaned, dab the seeds with a paper towel to remove moisture.

Place the seeds on a flat baking sheet, drizzle with two tablespoons of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of salt and bake at 350° for 12 to 15 minutes.  The baked seeds will be crispy and delicious.  Eat alone or sprinkle over soups and salads.
