1 cup pumpkin seeds

2 teaspoons vegetable oil

Salt or other seasonings,

powder, cayenne

Scoop seeds and pulp from pumpkin, cleaning off as much of the pulp from the seeds as possible. Rinse, drain and pat seeds dry with paper towels. Toss seeds in a bowl with vegetable oil and seasonings. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake for 35-40 minutes in a preheated 300 degree oven until golden grown, stirring occasionally.

Watch carefully to prevent burning. Seeds not eaten within two days should be refrigerated in an airtight container.
