How to Peel and Cut Butternut Squash |

Whenever I post a new recipe that calls for butternut squash, I invariably get asked by many people how in the world I manage to peel and cube that toughie!

So, even though I’m no specialist when it comes to shooting and editing videos, I recently sort of committed to making a short video on How to Easily Peel and Cut Butternut Squash, or at least show you how I do it.

It’s not that hard, you’ll see.

To tackle this task, you’ll need a few pieces of equipment, namely:

  • A large cutting board
  • A sharp Chef’s Knife (8″ or 9″ are good options)
  • A large, solid spoon (I like to use an ice cream spoon, they’re the best for that task, really)
  • A large bowl
  • A canine friend (optional)

Then, you’ll need to watch the following video

(hey, don’t laugh alright? I tried my best, I swear!)

And then you’re gonna need a few recipes to use up all that squash you just diced up!

Here are a few to get your started…


Happy Cooking!
