Bake at 350 for roughly 15 min, turn seeds. Continue to bake at 350 for roughly 10-15 min more or until seeds are starting to brown or lightly burn. DO NOT CRACK SEEDS THIS TIME

THIS IS THE ACTUAL RECIPE I USED as opposed to the one i posted oh so long ago. If it comes out good, it will go into the recipe database (and i will go "YES" *fistpump*)
At the boil, I baked the seeds with brown sugar but it made a complete trainwreck of a mess so the second time around, at the secondary, i didnt use any brown sugar.
