-2 tsp. melted butter or oil (olive oil or vegetable oil work well)
-salt to taste

Cajun seasoning blend
Directions: Preheat oven to 300° F. While it\’s O.K. to leave some strings and pulp on your seeds (it adds flavor), clean off any major chunks.

Bake for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
