What you need:
Clean all the seeds out of a pumpkin. You can use the seeds from Sugar Baby pumpkins or the big ones like you carve for Halloween, it doesn't matter.
Wash the seeds and clean out the chunks of pumpkin. Don't worry about it being completely perfect.
Spread out on a cookie sheet. It does not have to be greased since you will be moving the seeds around. bake on 250F for about an hour or more. Scoop around the seeds with a spatula about every 10 minutes. Sprinkle garlic salt on to your desired saltiness. Keep moving the seeds around and baking until the seeds start to turn brown and they snap in half when you try and break them
