Submitted by: Lynda Robson from Boston, MA
1 c. pumpkin seeds
1 T. oil
salt to taste
3/4 c. sugar

In a bowl, toss pumpkin seeds with oil and salt. Spread evenly in a shallow microwave-safe glass dish. Microwave on high for 5 minutes, stirring every minute. Microwave on medium for 8 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes, or until crisp. Set aside to cool; transfer to an 8-cup glass measuring cup. Add sugar, corn syrup and water. Microwave on high without stirring for 10 to 11 minutes, until medium-dark golden. Stir in butter, baking soda and vanilla. Immediately pour hot mixture onto a greased baking sheet; spread out evenly. Cool; break into chunks. Makes about 1-1/2 cups.
