  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Favorite toppings of your choosing (We have done Cajun, cayenne pepper, brown sugar, cinnamon, sugar, sea salt, pepper)
      1. Directions

      2. Rinse the seeds in a strainer under water to remove any pulp. Seeds will be slimy.
      3. Let any excess water drain off of the seeds after they have been cleaned but do not dry them 100%. This allows the toppings to “bake” into them.
      4. Place a single layer on a cookie sheet.
      5. Add your favorite toppings.
      6. Bake at 325 until golden brown and fully dried.
      7. Store in an airtight container.
