Fall is one of our favorite times of the year here in Utah, even though it lasts about two seconds. It is so beautiful to watch the leaves change colors and feel the crispness in the air return. There are so many great seasonal family memories to be made during Fall, so we’ve gathered our favorite recipes and fall activities and made a bucket list.

  3. Mix the seeds with the seasoning and butter/oil. You really can use whatever you’d like! Make sure the mixture is evenly coating the seeds, then pour onto the baking sheet.
  4. Spread the seeds into a single layer and bake for 45 minutes, occasionally stirring the seeds.
  5. After 45 minutes, turn the heat up for 325F for 5 minutes, to crisp up the seeds. Let cool before serving.
