Sweet & Spicy Pumpkin Fries Recipe

I decided to use fresh pumpkin for my recipe, and the inspiration came from Kate at Gluten Free Gobsmacked.  She made pumpkin fries last week, and I thought it sounded like a perfect idea!  Because I love making sweet & spicy seeds in the fall, I thought the same combo could go right onto the pumpkin itself.  The result was a very spicy and slightly sweet side dish that Jeff and I both enjoyed.  I saved a few of the fries for the kids and only coated them with maple syrup.  They gobbled them up!
