Rinse pumpkin seeds under cold water and try to get off all the pulp strings. Spray a baking sheet with non stick spray, or oil it down with your favorite cooking oil. Sprinkle with salt to taste, you might find yourself using a little more salt than usual. Bake at 325 degrees F until toasted for 15 minutes. STIR and flip.
Bake at 325 degrees F until toasted for another 15 minutes. Let them cool off completely before eating them. You don’t want a burnt tongue. Store in an air tight container or Ziploc bag.
Optional: If you’d like you can soak your pumpkin seeds overnight in salt water for a more salty flavor and an easier to eat seed. It doesn’t make a huge difference in the result, but some people prefer doing it that way.
