       Title: Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
  Categories: Snacks
       Yield: 1 batch
  
       1    Pumpkin
       2 tb Vegetable oil
            Salt to taste
  
   Scoop out the seeds and pulp from a pumpkin, and separate the pulp
   from the seeds, discarding the pulp.
   
   Rinse the seeds in a large colander under cold running water,
   removing any remaining clinging strings.  Seeds will feel slippery to
   the touch under the water.
   
   Dump seeds, a small amount at a time, into paper toweling and dry.
   Spread onto a large baking sheet and allow to finish air-drying for
   an hour or so. When seeds are dry, toss them with the vegetable oil
   to coat well and sprinkle liberally with salt.  Spread into a thin
   layer on the baking sheet and place in a 350 F oven for 30 minutes,
   or until golden brown, stirring every few minutes to prevent burning.
   
   Remove from the oven and allow to cool before serving.
   
   (These little suckers taste so good that roasted seeds rarely are
   allowed to cool much beyond just cool enough to touch before they get
   scarfed.)
