Sugared Pepitas

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 4 cups unsalted pepitas (hulled pumpkin seeds)
  • Coarse salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Heat water and 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Let cool.

  2. Place pepitas in a large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons syrup, and toss to coat. (Cover, and refrigerate remaining syrup for another use for up to 1 month.) Toss with remaining sugar, and season with salt.

  3. Spread pepitas in a single layer on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and dry, about 15 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet.
