Sweet and Salty Pumpkin Seeds
To remove seeds from the pumpkin, scoop out the seeds with a spoon or by using your fingers. Then discard any bits of stringy pulp before placing pumpkin seeds into a colander and giving them a good rinse.
In a pinch, you can toast pumpkin seeds in the microwave by heating them in a single layer on a glass baking dish or pie plate. Microwave pumpkin seeds for about 2 minutes and stir. Heat again for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring after each minute, until the seeds are lightly browned and crunchy.
