    don't eat them but let those babies dry out and plant them. I think that that is the way to go.

    I guess the membrane surrounding the seed is supossed to be the "tasty" part, but after squishing it to get the seeds out I have no desire to taste it.
    I tried letting them dry out on a paper towel, but that's like freeing them from rubber cement. It's either snot or buggars, ....Nature is so cruel.....LOL
