Lay seeds out in a single later on a baking sheet.
Let sit out for 1-2 days until completely dry.

SO many people throw away these precious and delicious seeds because they don't realize how easy they are to roast! Don't be one of 'those guys.'

Tis the season....of PUMPKIN EVERYTHING!
Therefore, we must have the pumpkin in order to cook all of the pumpkin things! Yes, you can buy that canned pumpkins...but WHY?! You can have fresh, homemade pumpkin puree for all of your pumpkin baking needs!
And this is why I will now teach you how SIMPLE it is to have lots of pumpkin right at your finger tips!
- Pie pumpkin
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Slice pumpkin into halves.
Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop, scoop out the 'guts' and seeds from the pumpkin.
**Set aside later for pumpkin seed baking!**
Place both halves in a glass baking dish upside down.
Add 1-2" of water into the dish.
Bake on 350 for 30-35 minutes or more depending on size of the pumpkin.
Remove from oven when pumpkin is fork tender. Let cool.
Once cooled, scoop out the pumpkin meat.
Puree pumpkin meat in either a food processor or a blender.
You can now use your homemade pumpkin puree for any of your pumpkin desires!
The possibilities are endless...
and don't forget about those pumpkin seeds!
