How To Peel Butternut Squash
Unfortunately, butternut squash doesn’t really have skin that tastes great. So, unless you are making butternut squash boats you should probably remove the skin. Keep in mind you should always follow the recipes in general, but I wanted to give you these tips.
I prefer to use a potato peeler to remove the skin on butternut squash. To do this, I recommend cutting the stem and the bottom of the squash off. Then peel it just like you would a really large potato. Always go in a downward motion so you don’t accidentally cut yourself.
Another option is to slit the peel and toss the butternut squash into the microwave. Heat it up for 3-4 minutes and check it. If the skin is easy to peel off, you can remove it that way. Otherwise, warm it up another minute or so. Just make sure to cut the ends off before you heat it up and poke a couple of holes so it doesn’t explode.
