When I was little my Dad used to roast pumpkin seeds, it was this long process (secret as well) and they were always so good. I tried many times duplicating his process, but mine never tasted the same as his did. So along my vast searching of bees and honey, I stumbled upon this fun recipe for Honey Roasted Pumpkin Seeds. So when the kids were carving their Halloween pumpkins I had them save the seeds so we could experiment!
The next step said that they needed to be dry… so we laid them on a towel and patted them down with another towel.
After they were dry we put them in a skillet with some olive oil. My assistant helped stir them and make sure they were browning evenly.
We added honey and stirred. Then we transferred them to a pan that could go in the oven and sprayed the sides with olive oil so they wouldn’t stick.
Popped them in the oven for about 30 minutes, stirred them a couple of times and ta-dah! Even my assistant liked them!
