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, around 15 minutes
Enjoy! What do you eat that most people throw away? Post it in the comments!
