Toasted Pumpkin Seeds

As a tradition I have always saved my seeds when I carve pumpkins for Halloween. They are such a nutritious and tasty snack. Pumpkin seeds provide zinc, which helps to build your immune system, and they contain heart healthy fatty acids...plus they taste great!

Here's how:

Separate seeds from string core.

Lay them out on a baking sheet in a warm dry area, for about an hour.

Toss with a little olive oil and seasoning salt.

Preheat oven to 350 F* and bake for 20-25 minutes.

*If you like them extra crispy, toward the end of baking turn on the broiler for 1-2 min.
