Low Carb Pumpkin Seeds

Low Carb Pumpkin Seeds

1 quart water
Pumpkin seeds
2 tablespoons butter
1/8 cup

Wash your pumpkin seeds, being careful to get all the pumpkin off of them.

Boil 1 quart of water.

After water has boiled, place the clean seeds and 1/8-cup of salt into water for ten minutes- stir the whole time.

Melt 2-tablespoons of butter.

Drain the seeds and mix them with the butter (add some salt if you want).

Place the seeds on a two layer tin foiled pan and place in oven at 350-degrees for 30 minutes.

Do not refrigerate seeds - put them in a sealed bowl and leave them on the kitchen table.
