Delicious Roasted Pumpkin Seeds and how to do it!

I’m going to be honest, my least favorite part of carving pumpkins is cleaning out the seeds. Sure I love Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins, Pumpkin Bread, and Pumpkin Cake. But the actual seeds, they kind of grosses me out.
Usually my husband takes on the job. I would probably just chuck the seeds but every year he saves them, cleans them, and makes awesome savory pumpkin seeds. So this recipe is courtesy of The Man Who Ate Everything.
I like to experiment with my camera and learn all I can by trial and error. To take this floating pumpkin seed picture all I did was put a seed on the end of a 6 inch wooden skewer and stick it in the pile of seeds so that it stands up.
I tried using glue to secure it but it wouldn’t stick so I used some gum I was chewing. Call me Macgyver. Don’t worry, I threw the gummy seed away. Take the picture from above in AV mode with the lowest aperture setting you can (mine was 2.8) focusing on the single seed so that the background blurs out. Easy right?
