Clean the seeds first by washing them in cold water and removing any remaining pumpkin pulp.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (Gas Mar 4)
Boil a pot of water, and add the seeds. Boil for 5 minutes then drain and pat dry.
Line a baking tray with some greaseproof paper, toss the seeds across the tray and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of oil. Make sure they are evenly coated. Season with salt and paper and bake in the oven for roughly 8-10 minutes. But keep an eye on them because they roast quickly!
Allow to cool, pat excess oil off with kitchen towel and enjoy as a little snack.
