Butternut squash is a type of winter squash that is grown for its sweet, nutty flavor and dense, orange flesh. It is typically harvested in the fall and can be stored for several months.
Butternut squash is a good source of vitamins A and C, as well as fiber, and potassium.
It can be eaten roasted, baked, or pureed and used in soups and other dishes.
When choosing a butternut squash, look for one that is heavy for its size and has smooth, unblemished skin.
Ground cumin is a spice made from the dried seed of the cumin plant. It is used in several cuisines, including Indian, Moroccan, and Middle Eastern.
Cumin has a warm, earthy flavor and is often used to season meats, stews, and vegetables. It can also be used in spice blends, such as curry powder and garam masala.
Ground cumin should be stored in a cool, dry place and kept for up to six months.
When ground cumin is fresh, it will have a light yellow color. As it ages, it will darken to a brown color. If your ground cumin is older than six months, it may have lost its flavor and should be replaced.
