Baked Pumpkin Seeds
PREP TIME: 2-3 hours
MAKES: 2 cups

St. Francis Episcopal Church located at 726 Maple Street in Denham Springs had such a success in their 1996 Pumpkin Patch fall celebration that organizers expanded the pumpkin sale to include a fair and a pumpkin cookbook this year. The pumpkins were purchased from Native Americans in the Southwest with proceeds going back to the tribe as an outreach ministry for the church. The children further enjoyed roasting pumpkin seeds.
