“Kakai Hulless” roasted pumpkin seeds

Kakai Hulless Pumpkin Recipes
This pumpkin is known for its hulless pumpkin seeds ~ great for roasting!
We’re also fond of it for stewing.

Roasted Hulless Pumpkin Seeds

  • Separate the seeds from the pumpkin flesh and strings and wash well  (usually putting them in a large bowl of water and rubbing them between your hands is a fast way to clean them).  Drain in a strainer for about 30 minutes and then spread them out on a baking pan.  Use a hair dryer to dry them quickly. 
  • Preheat oven to 275.  Spread the seeds evenly over a cookie sheet and lightly baste with a mixture of 4 tablespoons of melted butter and 1 teaspoon sea salt (or other salt).
  • Roast in the oven for 10 to 20 minutes until golden brown.  Stir about every 5 minutes.
  • Ovens may roast differently and it may take as little as 10 minutes.  However, ours took much longer – more like 30-40 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with a little salt and serve hot or cold.
  • Variations on the basting:  You can add garlic salt, or cayenne pepper for an interesting kick!  Or, add pumpkin pie spices for a more festive twist!
