    Is a long neck pumkin and butternut squash the same in favor?

    1. Yes, they’re quite similar. I use them interchangeably.

    Today I cut up longneck pupkins to bake and puree, and I got a sticky substance all over my hands. As it dried it made my skin very tight and I can’t scrub it off. It happened a little bit last year, but this is really terrible this time. Anyone else have this problem; and what to do?

    1. I’ve noticed that as well. It usually comes off with a few washings but if you’re having trouble getting it off, I’ve heard rubbing your hands with lemon mixed with warm water works too.

    Thank you!! I had cut another one before I read your reply, but massaged a little no-stick cooking spray into my hands before cutting and it worked pretty well. I just tried the lemon juice/warm water trick now and it works!

    I think that we should help a local enterprise by using a nearby
    removals company.

    Can you do long neck pumpkins in a microwave instead of pealing them and cooking them
