First cut the pumpkin into wedges then slice off the skin. A large ceramic knife works best with pumpkins that have thick skins.
Next slice the wedges lengthways about ½ inch (1cm) thick. Lay these slices flat then slice into approximately ½ inch (1cm) thick slices so they resemble chips.
Place a piece of baking paper on a baking tray if your tray is not non-stick then lay the pumpkin chips on top.
For the Garlic Pumpkin Chips; sprinkle garlic powder and salt over the pumpkin then drizzle over a little olive oil. Mix together with your hands so the pumpkin chips are well coated then spread the chips out in a single layer.
For the Rosemary Pumpkin Chips; sprinkle the fresh rosemary leaves, salt and minced garlic over the chips then drizzle over the olive oil. Toss through the chips until well coated then arrange into a single layer.
For the Spicy Pumpkin Chips; sprinkle over the spices and salt then drizzle over the olive oil. Toss through until well coated then arrange in a single layer.
Bake in a preheated oven 400°F (200°C) for 45 minutes to 1 hour turning the chips over halfway through the cooking time.
There are many different flavour combinations that work well with pumpkin chips. Thyme can be used instead of rosemary or try using fresh diced chillies in the spicy chips.

To save money try growing your own pumpkins during the warmer months. They will keep through the winter and one pumpkin goes a long way especially if you enjoy pumpkin soup for your lunch on a cold day. Pumpkin Fritters are also a great way to use up excess pumpkin.
Consider buying commonly used spices such as garlic powder in bulk. It has a long shelf life of up to two years and can be placed in small recycled glass jars or reusable glass spice jars(paid link) for ease of use. Garlic powder is wonderful sprinkled over the outside of baked potatoes with olive oil before baking.
Herbs are easy to grow at home and grow well in pots if you don’t have much space. Fresh thyme and rosemary tastes so much better than dried. Both are Mediterranean plants that will last many years in the garden with little care once established. Try these guides to growing Thyme and Rosemary.
