How to Select and Prepare Butternut Squash
Butternut squash has a smooth beige skin and a slightly bulbous base. Typically weighing between 2 and 3 lb. (900 g and 1.4 kg), this winter squash has an orange-yellow flesh with a sweet, slightly nutty flavour. To prepare, simply cut off both ends of the squash and peel before cutting squash lengthwise in half. Scoop out and discard the seeds and stringy fibers, then cut squash into cubes. Squash can be cut up in advance and stored in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours before being used as desired.
