I read that all winter squash seed can be eaten. I have had good eating from pumpkin, butternut, and acorn squash. Now I can add Chirimen squash to the list of great roasted seed. I recommend it!
Here is my stash of winter squash left from my summer garden…
My specimens of this squash may not be typical. I grew them in Arkansas and harvested them in July, which is probably too early, but the vines dried up and died so I had no choice but to bring these squash in. They are smaller than the average Chirimen squash, but they still taste excellent!
I used the same cooking method as for all other winter squash seed in a counter-top oven.
I didn’t cook all of them, though. I kept about 10 of the raw seeds to be planted in my garden again next year.
