Choosing a Butternut Squash
When choosing a squash, look for one that does not have cuts or bruises. The outside should be a solid light tan color. Brown patches or puncture holes are a sign to stay away. The squash should feel heavy for the size.
How to Peel and Cut a Butternut Squash
I prefer to slice the top off with a sharpe knife. Then using a potato peeler, peel the squash. The thick skin will peel in long ribbons. Once peeled slice squash in half lengthwise opening the inside with all the seeds. Scoop out the seeds using a spoon and discard. Slice each half into 3 or 4 slices lengthwise and cube slices into 1 inch cubes perfect for air frying or roasting.
