I'm going to talk to you about roasting pumpkin seeds. Now carving a pumpkin can be a long and gewing process, so it's nice to have a snack. When roasting pumpkin seeds, the first thing you want to do is preheat your oven for 300 degrees. While the oven is heating you can spend some time separating the seeds from the strings. Take the bowl of seeds that you set aside before and pull some of the seeds out of the strings and place them on a baking sheet. Don't wash them though because the pumpkin juice that's left on them, is actually what gives them flavor. So if you get rid of that, you get rid of the flavor. Don't worry about having them be too far apart from each other, you can have little piles, they'll all cook the same. Also, don't get too much of the pulp on there, because if you have too much that'll burn and they won't taste quiet right. Once you've separated the seeds and they are on a sheet, make sure they're spread out, they're on piles or it won't cook evenly. So spread them out so that there's about a single layer of seeds across the sheet. Then I recommend sprinkling a little bit of salt on them. You don't want to put too much on, just sort of gust them with salt. And once you put salt on them, if your oven is heated, it's time to put them in the oven. The seeds will need to stay in the oven for about twenty minutes or half in hour and check every five or ten minutes. Stir them around a little bit so that one side doesn't get more cooked than the other. And they should look like this, a light brown color. Once they're in a bowl, they're ready to eat and you have a snack.
