Using All the Pumpkin: Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

We started with pumpkins for Halloween, painted them into a witch and a cat, gutted them for Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Seeds, then baked them into Pumpkin Bread. I suppose it would be called 'getting the most out of your pumpkins.'

There was no thinking about what to do with the seeds. While the orange pumpkin muck was still clinging to my fingers, I could almost taste Martha Stewart's Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Seeds (found here). Just like the name, they are sweet, and spicy, but it's the cumin that really does it for me. The aroma and taste really add another dimension to the sweet/spicy combo that puts them in a league all their own. Definitely worth digging through the strings and fleshy bits to get to the seeds.
