Tell me something, when you eat them, do you just eat the whole thing or do you have to shell them like sunflower seeds?

This year I am going to toss them with olive oil and then chili powder instead of salt. I did soak them in salt-water last night though. This is the first time I have done that, but since so many people here do that step then it must be good

Now that I couldn't do! I tried my seeds & they are very good. Just enough heat to them to burn the back of your tounge as your swallowing them.

Are you supposed to dry them before cooking? I am attempting on drying them but I'm not sure what the best method is for doing so. I just scattered them on paper towels but have found those pumpkin seeds to be very sticky. How do you guys do it? What's the secret trick? or treat?

I would just dry them straight onto a sheet pan, and if they stick to that, scrape them up with a spat, then toss with oil and seasonings.

They smell really good & I can't wait to try them!
