I haven’t always loved pumpkin seeds… in fact, I didn’t end up making them in past years. In order to get them nice and crispy, I would end up burning half of my batch. If you haven’t quite nailed down your perfect pumpkin seed recipe then you are in the right place! I have seen a few recipes where you actually boil your seeds in the brine, but we have found that isn’t necessary.

What you need for your Brined Pumpkin Seeds:

  • Pumpkin.
  • Knife.
  • Water.
  • Salt.
  • Strainer.
  • Large Bowl.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  • Kitchen Towel.
  • Seasoning of choice.

 

 

Making your Brined Pumpkin Seeds:

First, you need to get your seeds! Cut off your pumpkin top and start scooping. Throw your seeds in a strainer and rinse well. Then place into a bowl. Add water until the seeds start to float. Add 1 Tablespoon of salt per 2 cups of water. Make these tasty brined pumpkin seeds this year! With the addition of just one step, you will have perfectly crispy pumpkin seeds that everyone will love!

Let soak in the solution, stirring a few times, for about 20 minutes. Preheat your oven to 275 degrees. Strain and spread your seeds on a kitchen towel to pat dry.

Drizzle about a tablespoon of oil on your seeds and mix. Spread your seeds on a sheet pan. It is good to have them overlapping a bit. Generously season, to the point it looks like too much. Some that won’t get any. (Also when you take them off the pan you will have quite a bit fall off.) If you want to try something new check out our Sweet and Savory Pumpkin Seeds.

Place your seeds in the oven for 20 mins. Then turn up the temp to 350 degrees and set a timer for another 15 mins. At this point, the edges should be getting slightly brown. You will find you don’t have to bake brined pumpkin seeds as long to get them crispy!
