    Pumpkin seeds?

    Ever made them? We carved 3 pumpkins this year, two for grandkids and one for us, and had an abundance of seeds. She laid them all out on a cookie sheet and baked them at 275 for 45 minutes, seasoned them with cajun salt, then baked them for 10 more minutes at 350. They're really good. It beats throwing out all of the innards !

    Yes, they are really good. Haven't had them in ages. She who is currently very enamored of the Rose Gold Kimber 380 uses pumpkins as decoration only.

    Years ago, the church I attended held pumpkin dinner at the beginning of each October. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin soup, pumpkin french fries, pumpkin casserole, etc., etc. The first time I attended I was amazed at how many ways pumpkin can be prepared, and it was very good - all of it.

    I love punkin seeds! I clean them off and then soak them in a kosher salt brine for a few hours. Then dry them out. You can put your favorite spice on them when you dry them out. Good eats. I eat them shell on but they're also good as pepitas.

    I used to eat them all the time. My buddy raises pumpkins and seeds were always available.
    I put a batch in a bowl with extra virgin olive oil. Drained the excess off, sprinkled with sea salt and baked in the oven
    until brown.
    Delicious

    Can you eat acorn squash seeds?
    If it's worth putting a hole in then it's worth putting a BIG hole in.

    YEP.

    Acorn squash seeds are nutritionally comparable to pumpkin seeds. They're packed with protein, heart-healthy unsaturated fatty acids and dietary fiber; whole squash seeds supply more than 5 grams of fiber per 1-ounce serving, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The interior kernels are an excellent source of iron, magnesium, phosphorus, vitamin E and zinc.

    Before You Eat Them

    Like all squash seeds, the seeds in an acorn squash must be separated from the fruit's slimy guts before you can eat them. Rinse them clean in a colander, using your fingers to remove any clinging fibers. Spread the seeds out on a towel and allow them to dry thoroughly.

    Raw, Dried or Roasted

    You can eat raw acorn squash seeds, but drying or roasting them enhances their rich nutty flavor. Use a dehydrator or a warm oven to dry the seeds. Alternatively, toss them with olive oil, spread them on a foil-lined baking sheet and roast them in a 250-degree oven for 10 minutes, or until they begin to brown.

    Did you know many parts of a pine tree are eatable. I'll eat the pumpkin pie and give the seed to my chickens.

    When we still had kids at home and carved Jack O Lanterns, we roasted the pumpkin seeds in the oven, with seasonings.

    My favorite tool to carve pumkins was my Sabre Saw! Made a lot of "Scream Mask" Jack O Lanterns.
