So many times I have broken a sweat and muttered unmentionables under my breath while trying to cut a butternut squash, that is, until I stumbled upon a simple hack. Check out my step-by-step directions, with photos, on how to cut a butternut squash without completely losing your patience.
I look forward to getting delicata squash from our CSA every fall. It is less commonly found at our local grocer, making it something special, although I would not be surprised or disappointed to continue to see this squash grow in popularity. It has a mild, sweet flavor, with a thin, edible skin. This recipe for my Tex Mex Stuffed Delicata Squash is husband and kid tested and approved.
