Roasted Pumpkin Seeds: Recipe

Don’t toss out the pumpkin seeds when you carve your jack o’lantern. They are rich in zinc, and yummy.  Here’s how to roast them (from Relish Magazine).

Dry 2 cups of pumpkin seeds in 300 degree oven for 30 minutes.  Toss with 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, and 1/2 tsp coarse salt and 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and roast for another 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
