What to do with Squash, and Pumpkin Seeds?

We all LOVE All Hallow's Eve, and Carving Pumpkins is a big part of it. Follow along, in this video, as I show you MY recipe for turning the seeds inside the pumpkin from trash, to an amazing Healthy Treasure Snack. My gardens are in New England, zone 6b/7a.

My gardens are in New England, zone 6b/7a.

For quite some time, I simply tossed those away... NOW, I turn those seeds into an Oven Roasted tasty Treat. I made a few batches this year... different spices.
• Sea Salt,
• Sea Salt, Cocoa Powder, and Cayenne,
• Sea Salt and Chili Powder

What kind of spices do you like on your snacks?

Watch below, to see how I planted my fall garlic, this year, in this video!



Most of you know, I prefer to grow my own food, locally. It's healthier for my family, and for the planet. I know what goes into my foods, and what chemicals are NOT in my food. Also, It cuts down on carbon emissions, less trucking, planes, trains, and boats, to get fresh foods to my table.

And that makes me smile... better for the planet, better for my own family.

I thought those pumpkins were egusi because they look similar to one from my country and it is best served with any meal, so tasty. It is good to grow your plants and crops as you know what chemicals are going into your food and stay healthy.
I just subscribed to your YouTube channel and I love how you turned those pumpkin seeds into three different batches, they look so neat and wrapped in nylon.
I popped in through #dreemport

I see others saying the same thing. Egusi is related to the Squash and Pumpkin family. That's probably why they all look similar.

Yummy 😋 pumpkin seeds. I usually just do salt and pepper but sometimes go for everything but the bagel seasoning

I have more seeds, probably won't do a video, but I have that seasoning (Everything But...) so, I will try that!

Hey @bluefinstudios, here is a little bit of BEER from @pixresteemer for you. Enjoy it!

Wow! over here these Pumpkin seeds look like Egusi seed. Such a resemblance!

Melon, Watermelon, Squash, and Pumpkin are all related. so, the Pimpkin seeds are related to Melon seeds in Egusi!

Oh I love the idea of cocoa and cayenne! I always just roast and salt but you've gone next level! Thanks for a brilliant idea

It's a little spicy and a little sweet. Kinda like my old Prom Date!
