Roasted Pumpkin Seeds- Traditional & Sweet Spiced

Roasting pumpkin seeds is my favorite part of Halloween! It's been a tradition since I was little and one I continue today. My favorite memories of Halloween are my dad helping us carve the pumpkin then my mom helping us roast the seeds. 

 Below I have included the recipe I use for our traditional roasted pumpkin seeds. It comes out perfectly seasoned and crunchy every time. Last year  I began experimenting with a sweet version and came up with a sweet spiced version. I hope you enjoy both!
