Roasted Butternut Squash Seeds
------------------------------
Butternut squash
1-2 teaspoons olive oil
pinch of salt

When you are cutting up your whole squash simply remove the seeds from the
pulp and set them aside in a bowl. This takes a bit of time and patience,
but it was fun to do with my toddler. When you are ready to deal with them
(that same day) rinse them in a sieve or colander. Lay the seeds out on a
sheet pan in a single layer. They will be pretty sticky so do the best that
you can. Then leave them to dry overnight on the sheet pan. You can cover
the pan with a towel, but don't let it touch the seeds otherwise the seeds
will stick to it. The next day, when the seeds seem pretty dry, drizzle the
olive oil over the seeds and sprinkle with salt. Roast them in a 250 degree
oven for about an hour until golden and crunchy. You could also dehydrate
them if you wanted to eat them raw.
