Squash seeds

Fall is finally getting into full swing here and I’m noticing more and more types of squash and pumkpins out at the farmers markets. While I am still working on some raw recipes to use them up(mostly pumkin or butternut for soups), I am even more curious what to do with the seeds I scoop out from these.

I know pumkin seeds are edible and good, but does anyone have any experience with seeds from butternut or acorn squash? Do they taste similar, are they just as safe? Thoughts….?

  • All Cucurbita species (pumpkins, squash, american ornamental gourds) and all Cucumis species (cucumbers, true melons, cantaloupe, etc.) have edible seeds.

    I learned that on the internet, lol.

    I wonder how the sprouts will be?

  • OK, I figured they were edible…now what to do with them?? I’m not really interested in sprouting them, so other ideas would be great.

  • I just like to soak them over night, then dehydrate them until crunchy! yummy. :) I snack on them plain, or put them in salads.
