Oven-Baked Pumpkin Fries

2 pumpkins (approximately 8 cups when cut up)
Savory Fries
2 tsp. Metropolitan Chef Curry Rub
2 tsp. Garlic Olive Oil
1 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. Cayenne Olive Oil (or Cayenne powder)
1 Tbsp. Robust Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Sweet Fries
2 tsp. Pumpkin Spice(no sugar)
2 Tbsp. Maple Balsamic 

    Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut the pumpkins in half, lengthwise, and remove all seeds. Use a potato peeler to remove pumpkin skins. Using a very sharp knife, cut pumpkins into 1/4-1/2 inch thick strips to resemble french fries. Using the spice mix of your choice, coat the pumpkin strips. If using the savory mix, put the fries in a bowl with the olive oil and add 1 tablespoon of the savory mix. Toss by hand until well coated. If using the sweet spice mixture, put the pumpkin slices in a bowl, sprinkle on the spices, then add the Maple Balsamic and, using your hand, toss until the pumpkin is coated with both spices and syrup. Arrange the fries, single layered, on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes or until pumpkin is soft.
