    Roasting is definitely the way to go in my book! I should get better at using the seeds, too…thanks!

    Thanks for the instructions on drying the seeds. Last time I didn’t get them dry enough. They were edible, but not as good. They make a great snack.

    Great post, Amy. Love the step-by-step instructions and photos! I have to confess that I have to peel most stuff first. It seems I’m always getting tiny bits of the peel in the mix. Don’t know if you notice in my pumpkin photos, but I use a grapefruit spoon to remove my pulp/insides. It works wonderfull because of the serrated edge. :-)

    Congrats on being cited by Kalyn–way cool! See, you are well known! I heard Kalyn speak at BlogHer Food. She had lots of great advice. I’ll have to go check out the post. Thanks for mentioning it!

    I’ve roasted a squash as you did here – but if I didn’t want the seeds, I’ve even just poked holes in the squash (I did this with a kobacha, since it seemed REALLY hard to cut!) with my knife and put it in the oven whole.

    I love roasted seeds though – yum yum! I love to spice them with all sorts of things – curry spices are wonderful, and so are sweet spices such as cinnamon and sugar!

    @Alta, I am so glad you shared this – especially because some squash are so tough.

    @Alta,

    I roast whole too! I coat the squash in olive oil, poke holes near the top, set in the oven on a rack and put a baking sheet on the bottom rack to catch the drips :) No good for seeds, but sooo good for the taste buds!

    After about an hour, I take it out and let it cool, then cut a hole and scoop out the squash. Mash/puree if desired, season, and serve!

    (Tip: I love substituting it for apple sauce in savory baking recipes, yum!)

    So glad you posted this! I bought an acorn squash this morning. I will be cooking it per your recommendations!!
    BTW, thanks for your comment about not having to visit every site, each week. I am taking your advice on that too. I am looking at the links and visiting the recipes that draw my interest or links that look new to me. And yours, was definitely one I needed this week! :-)

    Oh, congrats to Liz for her win and for you being mentioned on the blogher post!

    I just love the way you make this process simpler and explain how — and it’s such a good idea to use every part of these healthy foods.
