  • Preheat oven to 350° F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Place the raw kernels in a pile in the middle of the baking sheet.
  • Add oil and salt and use your hands to evenly coat the seeds with the oil and salt.
  • Spread the seeds out evenly in a single layer on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown. Note that the seeds will continue to cook on the baking sheet after removing them from the oven. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes on the baking sheet before eating or storing.



The roasted seeds are best stored in a glass airtight container in the pantry at room temperature. Stored this way, they can keep up to 3 months (that is, if they last that long).
