Sweet and Salty Pumpkin Seeds

Have you carved your pumpkins yet?  If not, get to it; it’s Halloween week!   If you’re ahead of the game, I hope you didn’t throw out the built-in snack.

This is the one and only time of year we eat pumpkin seeds so it’s important to roast them with the perfect blend of sweet and salty.

Confession: I had never gotten this quite right, until now.  I’m convinced the secret ingredient is the brown sugar.

The husband agreed these are the best yet and seriously addictive!
