How to Peel and Slice Butternut Squash

Butternut squash is really such a great fall and winter squash. The lightly sweet yet buttery flavor of it  is just so delish! But how do you peel and slice it the easiest way possible?

Let me show you how I do it.

Cut off the top and also the bottom of the sqaush. (Make sure it can stand up on its bottom)

Using a peeler, peel the rind off all the way around the sqaush.

Cut it in half the "long" way, Starting at the top using a large knife, cut through the center of the squash down through to the bottom. Here's the hardest part of the whole thing!
Scoop out the seeds and stands from the inside of each half.
If desiring to dice the squash into bite sized pieces, cut through each half into 1 inch strips, then cut the strips into 1 inch cubes.
Cook as recipe calls for.
