From sweet to savory, these squash seed snacks are perfect for fall
Yes, we know, we know, you love pumpkin. We do too — but it turns out pumpkin seeds are just the beginning when it comes to fall seed snacking. There are so many other squash seeds that are totally worthy of eating, and some are so tasty they'll actually drive you out of your gourd with how delicious they are. Pun intended.
But when it comes to roasted seeds, it's all about the DIY. Those little packets of flavored seeds are pretty expensive for how much you get (not to mentioned the fact that they're full of unwanted nasty ingredients), however the homemade variety can be made from leftovers. Yup, our days of throwing away the seeds from a roasted squash are over.
