You butternut overlook this long-lasting gift!
These squashes can keep for as long as six months – twice as long as a normal pumpkin – and this gift provides a family with a whole year’s supply! Every inch of these veggies is bursting with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals – even their seeds make for a great source of protein.
