Roasting pumpkin seeds is a wonderful way to make the most out of the pumpkin harvest in the fall.
This roasting technique actually works really well with any squash seeds (butternut, spaghetti, etc). They can be made sweet or savoury. When thinking about what spice combinations to use, I will think about popcorn toppers. Whatever goes well on popcorn, will be very tasty on roasted seeds.
