    Clean the seeds

    You will have to use the knife in order to carve the pumpkin. When you are carving the pumpkin, separate the pumpkin flesh and skin and hold the seeds for yourself. The seeds are the most important thing for you here, so try not to lose them.

    After you are done with separating them, wash them thoroughly and after putting them in a bowl of water, drain the water out and for about 30 minutes let them dry.

    Then put them in a baking pan and use a hair dryer to dry the seeds quickly. However, placing them in a warm oven will not be a bad idea either. Now, put your oven on 135 degrees centigrade.

    Now once you have the seeds all dried up, spread them over the cookie sheet that was required from you in the first step. Now baste the seeds with melted butter, some margarine, and vegetable oil. People try to moisten the seeds in different ways but you should know what exactly suits your style and you should be able to use it the way it suits you.

    Now use a little bit of salt and pepper, just the way you want it to be.
