Pumpkins and other winter squashes are late autumn and winter vegetables. Packed with Vitamin A and Vitamin C, immune system supportive nutrients, they’re great for eating this time of year. Not only will you reap their health benefits, you’ll get to enjoy their peak savory sweetness by eating them seasonally.
