Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

People tend to think of roasted pumpkin seeds as bland bird food, but these are a flavor-full healthy snack.  Fun to prepare with the innards of your Halloween pumpkin!


The tasty finished product!

Preheat oven to 275.  Rinse the pumpkin seeds under cold water cleaning out any pulp and strings.  Combine the olive oil, salt, paprika, cherry-infused balsamic and pumpkin seeds.  Mix thoroughly and place in shallow baking dish or sheet (i use a baking sheet with an anti-stick mat).  Bake for 1 hour, stirring occasionally so the seeds achieve an even color (the sugars and pectin in the cherry-infused balsamic give the seeds this great color).
