My brother in law brought home two great big pumpkins today to carve for halloween, and all i could think of was how fast I could get the seeds out so that i could roast them. Open up the pumpkins and take out all of the guts. A thorough rince of the orange goo should separate the seeds.
We made two kinds...Get your hands in it's easier.
Garlic butter - dice 2 or three cloves of garlic, grind it up with three tablespoons of butter. Coat the seeds with the mixture.
Wash your hands. Twice. Make sure they don't smell of garlic when making the next batch.
Sugar and spice - add 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1-2 teaspoons of cinnamon and 3 tablespoons of butter. Coat the seeds with the mixture.
Heat your oven to 300F, bake for 45-55 minutes. Bake each batch seperately, otherwise your Sugar and Spice batch will taste of garlic.

Last Thursday we touched down in Calgary, Alberta the final stop on our trip back to Canada. The last few days have been spent acclimatizing to the cold (it's freezing here!) and our new home. Yesterday, I started work at Critical Mass and you'll be able to expect some more recipes as soon as I get through the trip photos.
