    For butternut squash you can just pop the WHOLE thing in the oven! I line a cookie sheet with foil and place it in without any cutting or anything. Once it is cooked enough that a knife can go right through I slice it in half length-wise, scoop he seeds out, and then scoop the squash out. So much easier than trying to peel/cut a hard raw squash! :)

    I love growing butternut squash because it keeps so well through the winter…meaning I don’t have to take the time to freeze it or use up my valuable freezer space!

    I just slice it in half, bake, and then scoop it out and puree in the blender. We love using the puree in our pancakes, and of course also as baby food! :-)
