How to Cook Raw Pumpkin Seeds

Raw Pumpkin Seeds can be purchased from any health food store. The small green seeds are sold in bulk and usually run about $3 - $4 per pound. These are perfect to use for roasting when you do not want to deal with a messy pumpkin. 

Here is a simple recipe for Hot Sauce Pumpkin Seeds.

2 cups Raw Pumpkin Seeds
2 TB Butter
2 - 3 TB Frank's Hot Sauce

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a heat-proof measuring cup melt the butter in the microwave. Add the pumpkin seeds and stir to coat. Next add the hot sauce and again blend well.

Line a cookie sheet with foil and spread the seeds out in a single layer. Lightly sprinkle the seeds with salt.
Bake the seeds about 10 minutes then gently stir and turn them over. Return the seeds to the oven and bake an additional 8 - 12 minutes, until they are a light golden brown and still just a bit green. Do not overbake the seeds or they will be too crunchy and will lose their pumpkin flavor.

Remove from oven, stir gently and let cool slightly before eating.
