Tips to make butternut squash easier to handle:
Butternut Squash
Poke holes in the squash with a fork.
Butternut Squash
Cut off the top and bottom. Place on a towel and microwave for 3-4 minutes.
Butternut Squash
Let the squash cool for a minute and then peel with a vegetable peeler... the skin will come off much easier now. Cut the squash open and scoop out the pulp and seeds. Consider toasting the seeds for a snack later! Slice or chop the squash to suit your recipe.
