Toasted Squash Seeds

One of my fondest memories of pumpkin carving as a kid was getting to toast up the seeds. So much tastier than popcorn and so much more special being only available in the fall.

Since then, I discovered you can do this with any winter squash seed. This is probably not news for a lot of people, but for me it was a lightbulb moment. The joyful byproduct of this knowledge is a lot more opportunities for crunchy toasty goodness. These are seeds from a little Sweet Dumpling squash we got in our CSA box. 

A little olive oil, a little salt, a little pepper (in this case California Seasoned Pepper, Penzey's), and toast in the oven. Snack perfect! Really good on a salad too, if they last that long...
