How to Roast Pumpkin and Squash Seeds


I am sitting here eating delicious homemade roasted pumpkin seeds. I roast seeds from both squash and pumpkin and often enjoy their nutty flavor knowing they are tasty and nutritious. History tell us we have been eating pumpkin and the squash seeds since at least since the 1400s.
