This recipe showed-up on my Twitter feed last week, courtesy of Chow.com, and is in 140 characters or less: “Cinnamon-Sugar Pumpkin Seeds: Mix 2c pumpkinseeds/2t vegoil. Roast in single layer 375°F 10-15m. Toss w/2T sugar/¼t groundcinnamon.”
I was working with the seeds from four pumpkins, so I had more than the prescribed two cups. It’s fine problem to have; just toss all the seeds the with a reasonable amount of oil (just a light coating), place one layer on a baking sheet, bake, and repeat until all the seeds are used.
A bonus of having a few batches was the chance to experiment with flavors. The standard cinnamon sugar was good, but was also great kicked-up with just a little nutmeg. Going a little crazy, I tried making some curry pumpkins seeds. The concept seemed solid, the flavor combination worked, but I went more than a little to over the top with the curry powder–next year I’ll get it right.
I have fond childhood memories of my parents baking the seeds when my family carved pumpkins. This easy recipe was great way to reach back to Halloweens past.
