Winter snacks

Are you still eating winter squash from the garden? Besides saving a few seeds to plant next year, save the seeds for snacks! They're all edible; just make them like pumpkin seeds. Clean and soak overnight in salt water, then roast at 250 to 300 degrees until done lightly toasted, two to three hours.

I microwave pumpkin seeds straight after removing them from the pumpkin. I just remove as much of the flesh as I can, then put them in a microwaveable bowl (in a single layer if I can). I microwave them for about a minute at a time. Once they're dry I take them out. I usually eat them pretty quickly (like take them to work the next day). I imagine the salting and soaking would help them keep for longer.
