Here we go again, let me be the first to ask how you guys how to clean and or prepare the nasty gunk that comes out of the pumpkins and transforms into a tasty treat. Wash, no wash...salt first, or not, oil or no oil, etc... Someone please point me in the right direction so I can produce some goos pumpkin seeds this year. Thanks.

    Crab Leg,
    Pumpkin Seeds do require a little work but are worth the effort. After you clean the gunk out of the pumpkin, the seeds can be separated from the orange stuff just by squeezing in you hand. Shoot the seed into a strainer and keep the pulp in your hand. After that wash the seeds until they are clean.
    Next apply a generous coating of Tsunami Spin Rub and spread the seeds out in a single layer. Roast at 325 for about 10 minutes. Allow to cool and enjoy.[p]Hope this helps,

  • RhumAndJerk,

    When you say roast, do you mean indirect or direct. What do you cook them on (pan) and any type of oil.[p]CWM
