Eat Your Compost

If you ever use pumpkin or squash when you cook you need to know this simple trick to turn your compost into a tasty snack! 


Whether it's pumpkin bread, squash soup, or you're just throwing a squash in the oven you always end up with a slimy pile of seeds.  

Don't compost it!  Do this instead:

  • 1.  Do your best to separate out the seeds
  • 2.  Put them in a bowl with enough water to cover and add some salt 
  • 3.  Leave them overnight (or 10 minutes but the longer the better)
  • 4.  Put them on some sort of metal pan or sheet and bake them at 400° until they're nice and brown, maybe 15 minutes

Enjoy! What do you eat that most people throw away? Post it in the comments!

    Why do you need to soak them in salty water? Is this for seasoning?
