I know what you said but a new cook may not.
On your baked pumkin seeds you said to place seeds on paper towel to dry and sprinkle with oil and salt then put on baking sheet.
( someone might take it to leave pumkin seeds on paper towel and bake).
Please remove paper towel before baking.
Thank you,

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
