As the month of October comes to a close, pumpkin carving is the thing to be doing. However, once the pumpkin gets gutted, one question persists in the minds of people everywhere: what am l to do with all of these seeds? The best option is to make batches of both savory and sweet roasted pumpkin seeds. These are the perfect festive treat for snacking on while sipping apple cider, watching halloween movies or handing out candy to the trick-or-treaters.

Serves as many people as necessary
