Dear Barbara: Our kitchen looks like a stringy mess! We are carving pumpkins and are removing the seeds. I am going to try to make roasted pumpkin seeds for snacks. I know you bake them in a skillet or bake them in the oven, adding salt before baking. Is that the only thing you can do to them? I was thinking about maybe some spices or something. — Raychel from Lodi

Dear Raychel: You can spice the seeds with anything you like. Make them spicy with a little cayenne, salt and butter. If you like them on the sweet side, Use the same spices you would use in a pumpkin pie. A little fresh rosemary, very finely chopped, with a little garlic salt added is also good. Just be sure not to use too much; rosemary is very pungent. You can also set a variety of spices on the table and let the kids flavor their own. I would suggest you hold back some seeds in case someone goes overboard on the spices and won’t eat them. You can help them with a new batch!
