  Squash varieties with sweet flesh include:

                                                                  Blue Hokkaido



                                                                      Delicata



                                                                       Red Kuri

                                                              Waltham Butternut




    Try these yummy roasted squash and pumpkin seed ideas!



  For a sweet tasting seed, toss the seeds in honey, then add cinnamon and sugar.


  If you like a little kick, try tossing the seeds in olive oil, then sprinkle cayenne pepper, paprika, salt and pepper


  My favorite:  Melted butter with minced garlic and sea salt.


  Just roast the seeds at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes and toss them a couple of times for an even roast, and there you have it!


  How do you like your seeds roasted?

  1. LOVE your blog! I look forward to reading more and learning lots. I so wish we lived on a piece of land somewhere, but, atlas, we are in suburbs with lots of neighbors and we are thankful. I love to cook from scratch, though, and am always looking for more ideas.

  2. Thanks for your comment! Cooking from scratch is becoming a lost art, and even though you do not have land, you are being more self-sustainable than the majority! I hope you continue to enjoy reading my blog. It is at the beginning stages so I really appreciate comments, especially good ones!
