... I love cooking pumpkins and the seeds. I do not remember where I got the recipe from but it is a favorite of mine.
I remember this. But we didn't have Halloween, just pumpkins on a vine. I would harvest the seeds, rinse as you say, and then just bake.
Sprinkled with salt (this was in the day's before dictatorial doctors) and munched.
Later on I used to roast them until dark brown and then ground them up for use as a coffee-substitute. I think that was/is done during war time in various coffee-deprived jurisdictions.
Next year I shall plant zucchini AND pumpkins.
