Hi santina, I'm not an expert on pumpkin seeds but I do eat them. (:
This is how I prepare them:
Only use raw, unroasted pumpkin seeds (aka pepitas)
Soak seeds in glass jar with salt water for 24 hours, with enough water to cover again by about one-third (I put jar in sunlight to warm water)
Drain and rinse seeds
Dry seeds in food dehydrator, or in single layer on cookie sheet in conventional oven on lowest temperature with oven door cracked open while drying, until crisp/crunchy
Store in glass or plastic jar in refrigerator (to maintain freshness of plant oil) with a few grains of white rice (to reduce moisture ... only thing I've found for which white rice is any good)
As for usage, I'll mix them with flax seeds prepared the same as above and put a small handful of them in a green salad. Oftentimes, I'll add a tablespoon or two of them to some dried berries, walnuts and cacao nibs to take on a bike ride. And, sometimes, I'll just grab a handful to eat plain. Hope this helps. (:
Edit: I also make large enough batches to last for a week or two, so that I'm not preparing them very often.
