They are good as both a snack or on a salad!

    I was going to make an instructable on this. But, you made one first.

    The thing I do different is boil the seeds in salt water for 10 minutes after rinsing them off. It is suppose to make them easier to digest and have more of a flavor.

    I've never been a fan of pumpkin seeds, but my kids absolutely love them. ...So we roast them every year!

    These are great instructions. Thanks for sharing this!
