Basically, you boil / simmer the seeds in heavily salted water for about 10 minutes before roasting them with whatever seasonings you want. There are further detailed instructions on the link listed above, but that’s basically it. We tried it for the first time this Halloween when David carved our annual jack-o-lantern. They were much crispier and crunchy this way. Loved ‘em!

You might try these seeds sprinkled over your pumpkin ravioli, as a soup garnish or tossed into your make ahead bread mixes.
