Acorn squash seeds taste similar to pumpkin seeds except the hulls on the squash seed are smaller. This makes them less dry tasting than pumpkin seeds and they don't get caught in your throat as easy.


Preheat oven to 350°F / 180°C / Gas Mark 4

Cut uncooked squash in half and scoop out seeds. Clean pulp and strings off the seeds in a colander under running water. Set the seeds on a towel to dry.

Place the seeds in a small bowl. Either melt margarine and pour onto seeds or put solid margarine into bowl with seeds and mix with your hands.

Spread seeds evenly on a cookie sheet. Place in a preheated 350°F. oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the seeds start to turn brown.

Remove from the oven, salt to your liking, and enjoy this healthy snack.
