Re: Dry seeds?

eating :icon_smile:

But to be honest I was pretty much just going to do that, wash off the goop then put them somewhere warm and airy on kitchen paper. Then if that did'nt really work just roast them and see :dontknow:

Dry seeds?

Probly a very a daft question with a blindingly obvious answer but how do you dry squash/pumpkin seeds? I eat a bloody ton of the stuff a week, specially as it's two huge ones for a quid in the green grocers atm, and it always seems daft to throw away the seeds when they are so expensive in the shops.

Re: What can I grow?

An other option would be to find some-one with a bit of garden that you could 'rent' for a share of the crop. My elderly neighbour was delighted with this arrangement. Our deal was I mowed her lawn & weeded her front gardden for a biggish area at the back to grow veg. MW I would love to be able to ...

Re: Chillis

Try pickling them, keeps for ages and you can use them in both cooking and eat them raw on salads and such. Great in couscous salad or in a kebab. My dad tends to mince them up really fine and feeze them in icecube trays for cooking size portions, does it with ginger and garlic too. but i guess you ...
