I used to think doing pumpkin seeds took more effort than it was worth. Separating them from the pulp alone was quite a process. Until I read about the boiling water method. To remove the pulp from the seeds you can place them in boiling water for about 10 minutes, which also nicely plumps up the seeds. From there you let them dry, then drizzle with olive oil and bake for 10-15 minutes. Give the tray a shake at the half way mark, and sprinkle with kosher or sea salt when finished.
Paul returned home from a business trip on Monday night with eight gorgeous pumpkins ranging in size and color, so we'll be doing more of these in the future. They keep nicely in a mason jar for weeks and top salads and muffins beautifully.
