Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

We look forward to fall in anticipation of making these spicy pumpkin seeds. I often put some in a decorated jar to give as a gift.


2 cups (8 servings)


2 cups fresh pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Preheat oven to 250°F (121°C). Line a 15 x 10 x 1-inch baking pan with foil; grease the foil.

In a small bowl, toss pumpkin seeds with oil, Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper sauce. Combine the salt, paprika, cumin and cayenne; sprinkle over seeds and toss to coat. Spread pumpkin seeds in pan.

Bake, uncovered, for 45 to 50 minutes or until lightly browned and dry, stirring occasionally. Cool completely.
