Roasted/Fried Squash Seeds

I've been trying to cook more vegetables and this snack alone makes it worth it to me to cook winter squash. I only wish I could find a store that still sold fresh pumpkins. We've fried up seeds from pumpkins, spaghetti squash, and butternut squash. All are tasty. All have far too few seeds.

Roasted/Fried Squash Seeds

  1. Cut squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Remove the stringy pulp from the seeds as best you can.
  2. Soak the seeds in salty water overnight.
  3. Heat some vegetable oil over medium heat. When hot, add the seeds.
  4. Shake the pan a bit and cover. Keep shaking or stirring occasionally to keep it from burning. Fry them until they shells turn a light brown. They might start popping out of the pan so keep a lid handy.
  5. When done, you can add a little more salt if you like. Let cool on a paper towel and then eat. There's only enough for a snack really. Too bad.
