Keeping Roasted Pumpkin Seeds Crispy

We love snacking on pumpkin seeds. So during Halloween we generally buy extra pumpkins just to harvest and freeze the seeds so they can be enjoyed throughout the year. However, after roasting, once we go to store them they lose their crispiness. We've tried air tight containers with (or without) paper towels in them and just regular Ziploc like bags to no avail. Anyone have a way to keep them crispy during storage?

taken from brochure of VHQ . Their site:

Toasted Squash Seeds- Makes a delicious snack or soup garnish. Place seeds in a saucepan with water to cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 2 hours. Drain, spread out to dry on a towel or paper towels. Preheat oven to 250 F [120C]. Transfer to a foil- lined baking sheet and toss with a small amount of oil and salt. Toast in oven, stirring a few times, until golden brown, about 1 hour. Let cool on tray; store in a tightly sealed container.

Hope this helps. We never realized that cooking was required. notetotel Ontario Canada

I never knew to cook the seeds first either because I've only ever toasted a small batch that are generally eaten within a week. Thanks for finding that info, Notetotel
