    To toast fresh pumpkin seeds, first preheat the oven to 225 degrees.

     

    Cut the pumpkin in half vertically and remove the seeds from the pumpkin halves with a large spoon. Using your fingers, remove the stringy pulp from the seeds, and place the seeds in a bowl. 

     

    Toss with a small amount of olive oil.

    Spread the seeds out in an even layer on a baking pan and sprinkle with sea salt.

    Bake for 50 minutes or until the seeds are crisp, stirring every 20 minutes so that they’ll roast evenly.
