|Cutting a butternut squash can be really difficult.|
Here's a quick tip.
Love to Eat Them but Hate to Cut Them?
I love butternut squash. But they can be really hard to cut. The outer skin can be so tough you feel like you need a machete to cut through it. I use to wait until Doug was around to do it so I didn't risk cutting my hand off, but now I use this little trick that makes it super easy. Check it out.
The key is to peel them first! Take a vegetable peeler and peel the entire squash.
Once it's completely peeled, lay the squash on its side on a cutting board and just slice off the top and the bottom. A good knife will go through it like butter.
Now turn the squash up on its end and carefully cut straight down to the bottom.
Wasn't that simple?
I'll be posting a delicious butternut squash recipe in later this week so stay tuned!
