We are loving eating these butternut and acorn squash this year. We cut them in half, scoop out the pulp and seeds (saving the latter for baking, Yum) place face down on a foil covered baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees until delightfully tender. Then lightly butter and sprinkle brown sugar on them. Yum!!!
The oven roasted seeds are yum too! Put them with the pulp in a colander. Then rise under running water and remove as much pulp as you can while saving the seeds. Pat dry a bit with paper towel. Put on a 'Pam' sprayed baking sheet for about 10 minutes. One or two will pop off like popcorn when nearly done. Lightly salt and enjoy. We eat the entire seed and love these.
We made that trip to the attic and our tree is up! What a wonderful time of the year. How great is the love of our Saviour for the world!
