ISO Seasonings for Pumpkin Seeds.

My girlfriend's parents are scooping there hundreds of pumpkins out right now.
Any good ideas for some seasonings?

You are in a rude mood tonight. I only like salt on mine. And I cook mine at about 300 for an hour.

I heard of some people sprinkling them with Hidden Valley Ranch dressing - the dry kind in the packet. I am with Alix, I like a little salt - I'm not sure if I am going to do butter or oil, though.

I have seen some recipes for cooking them low and long and others high and short. We are carving tomorrow and I am thinking we are gonna have alot of seeds - I plan on trying both ways so I know for sure next year!

Nope. Thats the seasoning I liked. Sorry it isn't to your liking. You're very welcome for the response to your question though.

Ok, here is a fav recipe of mine using raw pumpkin seeds:

1 cup raw (hulled) pumpkin seeds
3 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon red chili powder

Spray heavy non-stick skillet with olive oil spray and pour in pumpkin seeds. Spray the pumpkin seeds lightly with olive oil to coat. Turn burner on to medium heat. Sprinkle sugar on the bottom of the pan. The sugar will liquify and coat the seeds as you stir them around in the pan. This will take about 6 to 8 minutes. Turn off heat and sprinkle with kosher salt and chili powder. Stir to coat.

I like to munch on them warm, they are really good, or let cool and save for snacks for later.... very addicting!!

Well, while it might not show any "imagination" - I like mine deep fried and salted. Why? Because I like the flavor and don't want it masked with other "stuff". I also prefer my pop-corn to be only topped with butter and salt - not ranch dressing powder, buffalo-wing seasonings, A1 sauce, etc.

I'm with Alix on this ... salt - pure, plain and simple.
