Roasted Watermelon Seeds

(based on a recipe from

1 c raw watermelon seeds (black seeds only, not the small white ones)
1 T salt

Rinse thoroughly to remove any remaining watermelon. Drain, then spread out in a single layer on a cookie sheet to dry. Drying outdoors in direct sunlight is recommended, but not if you have as many birds and critters as I do who would love to help themselves to the seeds! Roast seeds in a 325 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Spray with oil or cooking spray and sprinkle lightly but evenly with salt. Allow to cool completely before eating.

Note – other melon seeds can be used, too, like cantaloupe and honeydew.
