Squash - Butternut

Butternut squash is essentially a winter squash, but now available for most of the year. It a pale brown-orange skin and a deep, orange flesh. The wonderfully moist flesh has a sweet, buttery flavour and a slightly fibrous firm texture. Butternut squash is served cooked. It can be included in soups and mixed roasted vegetable side dishes. Fresh sage goes particularly well in butternut squash recipes. Mashed butternut squash makes a tasty side dish to serve with grilled chicken, flavour the mash with a little ground nutmeg, cinnamon or cumin to help bring out the sweetness. Butternut squash can also be puréed to make baby food.
