Extra Sweet Pumpkins, Squash and Oh So Good Seeds!

  If you like to try different pumpkins and squash, but aren’t sure which ones are tasty and sweet, read on!  I found these varieties in Mother Earth News along with some very tasty roasted seed ideas.

Pumpkin varieties that are known for their sweetness are:


                                                                 Galeux d’Eysines



                                                              Marina di Chioggia


                                                                     Sugar Pie

  Squash varieties with sweet flesh include:

                                                                  Blue Hokkaido


                                                                       Red Kuri


                                                                      Sweet Meat

                                                              Waltham Butternut

    Try these yummy roasted squash and pumpkin seed ideas!

  For a sweet tasting seed, toss the seeds in honey, then add cinnamon and sugar.

  If you like a little kick, try tossing the seeds in olive oil, then sprinkle cayenne pepper, paprika, salt and pepper

  My favorite:  Melted butter with minced garlic and sea salt.

  Just roast the seeds at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-15 minutes and toss them a couple of times for an even roast, and there you have it!

  How do you like your seeds roasted?
