Four our money the pumpkin is kinda like the most diverse food ever – you can carve scary faces into them, you can bake inside them, you can make lanterns out of them, you can cook the flesh into both savory and sweet dishes, you can decorate with them, and our favorite – roast the seeds into an unbelievable, healthy snack, that, if you’ve already bought the pumpkins, is totally free.   Our favorite food blog, Serious Eats, provides not only this very complete how-to, from harvesting to cleaning to roasting, but five amped up recipes, including ginger and orange-zest, cinnamon-sugar, and a spicy option.
