Don't Toss the Seeds

Written by:

'Tis the season for carving pumpkins with the kids, baking squash with dinner, and slippery seeds piled on the countertop.

Roasted seeds from pumpkins, butternut squash, and acorn squash make a tasty treat.

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees
  • Rinse the seeds to remove the 'strings' and flesh
  • Pat dry with paper towel
  • Place in a bowl and lightly coat seeds with 2 teaspoons of melted butter, olive or coconut oil.
  • Spread seeds out onto a cookie sheet in a single layer, season as you wish.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally
  • Seasoning options: Salt, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, season salt, and black pepper.
