I have been making this recipe for over 40 years. We used to take our kids pumpkin picking on Long Island. At that time it was $2.00 for all you could carry. We would toast the seeds and cook the pumpkin. Now I used store bought but it comes out just as good. When I start smelling it baking the fond memories of those big fields and our children come back to me.
