Saving Spaghetti Squash Seeds

It is February and we still have about 5 spaghetti Squashes left from the garden!!
They are a great winter keeper - and delicious in all kinds of recipes,

So why not save the seeds when I am gutting them, I ask?

 Its so easy to do.
~Remove the seeds from the pulp
~place in a colander and rinse
~ Pat dry with a clean dish towel or paper towel
~ place on a plate/cookie sheet/ newspaper...  to dry

~ They need about one week of drying, but the longer the better!
And look how many seeds ONE squash gives - almost one hundred!!

~Place dry seeds in a little bag Paper is best. I use old envelopes, cut them to size...

~Label the kind of seed, origion AND Month/Year.

THis here made me happy, I sent away two packages which I've been meaning to send for MONTHS!!

Then I organizes a couple disastrous cupboards and shelves!

What a great day.
Its finally SNOWING too!!
