You’ve got a pumpkin that you want to carve. Don’t throw away those seeds from the inside.
Remove the seeds from the stringy part (pulp). Do not rinse. It’s okay to leave a little of the pulp on the seeds.
Mix the seeds with 1/4 cup of melted butter or margarine, then spread on a cookie sheet.
Sprinkle with a small amount of salt.
Bake in oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. The seeds should be lightly browned.
Let cool. Store in airtight containers or plastic bags.
