Preparation:

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).
