I’ve been picking them up from Trader Joe’s but also see them in my supermarket. They have a shorter season than butternut so enjoy them before it’s too late! You can season them any way you wish, but I love any excuse to get more turmeric in my diet because of it’s health benefits and the flavor is wonderful.
