How to Peel and Cut a Butternut Squash
I’m not claiming to be an expert at cutting butternut squash, and certainly not at carving pumpkin and other vegetables as hard and stubborn as my head—as my mom would say—without cutting myself. However, I have—through trial and error—figured out an easy way to cut a butternut squash. I have found out that the easiest way is to cut off about an inch from the top and bottom of the squash to make it stand straight on a cutting board, peel off the skin with a sharp vegetable peeler, cut the butternut squash in half lengthwise, seed it using a spoon or melon baller, and finally cut it into cubes. It sounds simple, but I’ve done these steps in many different orders before I got them right. I could have googled the method and saved myself the trouble, but I seem to enjoy learning from my mistakes and reinventing the wheel.
