How to Make Honey Roasted Pumpkin Seeds


Before the goblins trick or treat the neighbors, there are pumpkins to carve. It’s a messy process but yields far more than a scary face on the front porch. Save pumpkin flesh for pies and soups; the seeds—whether boiled, toasted or roasted—make delicious snacks.

Step 1

Place the oven rack in the highest position. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.

Step 2

Mix the butter, brown sugar, salt and honey in a bowl. Add the pumpkin seeds and toss to coat.

Step 3

Pour the seeds onto a jelly roll pan and spread them out in a single layer.

Step 4

Bake the seeds for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, turn them and place them back in the oven for 15 minutes.

Step 5

Remove the seeds from the oven and sprinkle with sugar. Return the pan to the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

Step 6

Allow the seeds to cool and then store them in an airtight container.
