The butternut squash has a rich, golden-yellow tender flesh that offers a superb creamy flavor. It contains vitamins A, C and some B and delivers an ample dose of dietary fiber.
Storage: Well-ripen squash can be stored for many weeks in a cool, humid-free and well-ventilated place. However, cut sections should be placed inside the refrigerator where they keep well for few days.
Preparation: Cut rinsed squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Bake, roast, steam, braise, sautee or puree. This squash is ideal for soups and stews.
