Recipe Notes

Get creative with the seasoning! You can use ground cumin or curry spices to get a different flavor for your roasted pumpkin seeds. You can also make them autumn flavored and sweet by adding pumpkin spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, all-spice, and ground clove and then a touch of maple syrup or maple sugar or honey.
