    1. Yes, they’re very salty and delicious. :) They have a completely different flavor than sunflower seeds though. Kind of closer to pistachios I think. I haven’t eaten them in a while but I used to love them!

  1. Is there a reason they are boiled before roasting? I’ve never done that before. I usually just rinse, toss with seasonings and roast. Hmm.

  2. Oh I love pumpkin seeds too! And I love all the variations for spicing them up you shared. Thank you
