My first favorite part of halloween is handing out the candy (which I won't discuss here due to the argy-bargy that happens in my house every year....I buy the candy, 'others' eat it, I demand that 'others' replace the candy but 'others' replace it with candy that sucks. I buy more candy, 'others' eat it,...wash rinse, repeat.)
My second favorite part is roasted pumpkin seeds! I live for roasted pumpkin seeds the way some people live for turkey day.
Melted butter or oil (olive oil or vegetable oil work well)
Cayenne if you are wacky and adventurous
Preheat oven to 300° F.
While it's O.K. to leave some strings and pulp on your seeds (it adds flavor), clean off any major chunks.
Clean off of the seeds, but I still leave a bit of the goop (string, pulp) for kicks.
Toss the seeds with butter and seasoning and then put on a cookie tray and cook until golden brown, about 45 mintues. Be sure to stir the seeds every 10 min or so.
Sorry I don't have exact measurements, but I just usually wing it. I guess you could say 2 tablespoons of melted butter per cup of seeds.
