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.
