With having such a huge family, I’m always looking for ways to cut back on spending money when it comes to shopping for groceries. One way that has helped me save tons of money is cooking family meals with seasonal produce. Seasonal produce is not only within my budget, but it is also full of nutrients and taste fresh.
Winter squashes are a great winter seasonal produce to use when making meals for your family. They are harvested in the cold-weather months of winter and the perfect seasonal ingredient. Some winter squashes you might be familiar with are pumpkin, acorn, and spaghetti squash.
These winter produce are perfect. No matter how you prepare them you will always have a naturally sweet taste everyone will love. They are also totally comforting for the cold days of winter. I also love how long they last for weeks before needing to eat them.
