How to peel and cut a butternut squash

The method to cut a butternut squash might be intimidating, but in reality, it is way easier than it looks:

  1. Using a large, sharp knife, grab the squash firmly with one hand and cut off the bottom of the butternut squash in an even round slice. Then cut off about, 1/4-inch from the stem end.
  2. Holding the butternut squash in one hand, peel off the outer layer of the squash with a vegetable peeler. You might have to make several passes to reach the orange flesh.
  3. Maintain the peeled butternut squash upright on your cutting board. Cut down the butternut squash in half lengthwise from top to bottom. Having cut the first round at the bottom ensure stability. If your squash is not very stable at this point, cut another 1/4-inch from the bottom so you get a nice flat surface.
  4. Scrape out the seeds and pulp with a spoon.
  5. Lay the butternut squash halves, cut side down, and cut the butternut into slices, lengthwise.
  6. Then cut the slices crosswise to obtain your butternut cubes.
