Veggie Type: Gourd
Peak months: Harvested August-October
Uses: Winter squashes can be difficult to cut, and butternut squash is no exception. Make sure your squash is stabilized while you’re cutting it in half lengthwise and then scoop out the seeds. Like acorn squash, butternut squash can be roasted as is, with butter and brown sugar in the center. However, it’s more common to remove the skin and dice before roasting. Butternut squash is also great for soup and stew!
