I’m not claiming to be an expert at How to Peel and Cut a Butternut Squash, and certainly not at carving a 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 on How to Peel and Cut a Butternut Squash.

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.
