I used to make pumpkin seeds as a kid and loved them. My last attempt, last year, was disaster. I recently got a decent home deep fryer and decided to give it a try. I have been making pie pumpkin soup quite a bit lately this fall, and I wanted to try to do something with the seeds.

I washed the seeds and removed all strings. I dried off the seeds and dusted them in a spicy flour mix. I put them in at 375 for five minutes and the results are delicious. A little old bay and season salt. Mmmmm

They are a distant cross between a sunflower seed and a nut. Some people bake them and some fry them. I like them deep fried for the best texture and crunch.
