Roasted Winter Squash Seeds
Canned acorn squash tonight. Had a lot of seeds that looked too good to just throw away. So I looked up a way to roast them.
This is the before picture:
Rinse them off
Put in a bowl and add 2 tbsp. olive oil and 1 tsp salt for every 1 cup of seeds.
Bake in 275 degree oven 40 minutes. Stir occasionally. If you dry them first then you can shorten the baking time to around 15 minutes. I just threw them in wet.
Or you can experiment with different spices to add a little pizzaz!
And this is the roasted after. Yummy and crunchy!
A very nutritious snack:)

Me too. But for years I have been throwing them into the compost. What a waste! They were so yummy that's it's hard to pace myself now as I look at the rest of the whole squash and pumpkins sitting here in storage. I really want to try the Heritage Blue pumpkin that a friend gave me...common sense says the seeds will taste the same but it's such a cool looking pumpkin that I'm curious if it will different. In fact, I am going to post a photo of it right now as a new blog post.
