I have ten butternuts ready to harvest from my garden next week. I have peeled them with a peeler as most people suggested here, but most of the time I remove the hard outer shell like Gretchen suggested.
I love butternut squash baked, steamed, thinly sliced and sauteed. Butternut squash soup is wonderful and the cooked, mashed squash makes a wonderful pie that I like better than pumpkin pie.
Yesterday I noticed cubed butternut squash, cleaned and ready to cook in the produce section at Trader Joe's.
Good luck with your butternut recipe. Let us know how it turns out!

Thanks everyone ... I bought what I think is a good vegetable peeler and it seemed to work well. I was prepared to boil it a little to get it off but no need to, this time.

The recipe turned out fantastic, IMO. I kept wanting to go back for more anyway. I'm bringing it to a potluck tomorrow so that will be the true test.

Hooray for another vegetable in my recipe arsenal!

It's a good one. Make a soup with the squash, onion, and apples.
