2 cups pumpkin seeds, raw, whole and washed
1-2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). In a colander, rinse the seeds under running water to clean off the strings and pulp. Place seeds into a bowl with melted butter and mix to coat. Combine the sugar, vanilla extract and salt together in a small separate bowl and stir. Sprinkle the seeds with the seasoning and mix until they are evenly coated. Spread seeds in a single layer on a greased cookie sheet. Bake until golden brown, stirring occasionally, approximately 15 minutes.
