I know there was a recent post about pie pumpkins and roasting pumpkin seeds.
I have a small pie pumpkin and am going to bake that per Suzanne Graham's blog.

What I'm asking, though, is I bought some of the raw green ones at WF and am going to add ghee (about how much for a single layer of seeds on a cookie dish) and sea salt.  If I remember bake at 350 degrees.

Now I tried this last weekend and I roasted them about 30-35 minutes.  They didn't burn but they were quite well done.  

Could someone illuminate me on this?  Do I have the right temperature?

Thx.

Joy

350 degrees is pretty hot and will probably damage the good oils in the pumpkin seeds. I would try something much lower, maybe 225-250 and see if that works.

I sometimes soak and dry my pumpkin seeds on my dehydrator and I think I use low setting of maybe 105-120 degrees.

I agree with MoDon, 350°F is a bit hot - you wnat the oven barely on really and turn frequently.

The pumpkin seeds straight from the pumpkin {in the shell} can be cooked hotter, but you still need to turn frequently. Plus fresh pumpkins won't need any oily matter as they are still wet.

MoDon and Schluggell:

Yes, I agree, 350 is too hot.  The ghee gives the seeds extra oil but they lost the pumpkin flavor at that temperature.  I'm going to try it over the weekend.  Again, thx.

Drea:

Glad you reread the post.  I browse alot of posts and sometimes I just have to slow down a bit.
