My family love toasted pumpkin seeds. With all these cantaloupe I wondered if I couldn't roast these the same way? So I washed and picked out some cantaloupe seeds. Put a couple tablespoons of olive oil in a pan and preheated the oven to 200 degrees.
Then I let these roast until good and toasted and brown. It took over an hour with me stirring every 20 minutes. Then once they were brown and crispy I removed them from the oven and sprinkled with sea salt and a little granulated garlic.
And the family consensus was....great flavor just not a whole lot of meat to the seeds like pumpkin.
Baby O said they reminded her a lot of sunflower seeds(just crunchier and chewier). She said they are addictive though : ) Seems each time she walks through the kitchen I see her with a handful.
