It's the time of year when pumpkin patches are visited, jack-o-lanterns are carved, and pumpkin seeds are toasted. My kids always enjoy collecting the seeds from the pumpkin, getting all that ooey-gooey inards off the seeds, and toasting them. These always turn out great. Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 1 hour
