Everybody's basic classic standby winter squash. Bake or steam it & then mash, or cut in chunks & oven roast as part of a winter veggie medley. Squash soup is a hearty, warm-me-up treat; butternut is also great chunked into stews (with meat or all-veggie). Either sweet or savory seasonings will enhance the rich flavor of this squash.
Butternut Squash by the pound
Store all winter squashes in a cool, dry place -- don't refrigerate whole squash, but if you've used part of one then put the rest in the fridge. Properly stored whole squash will keep at least a few weeks.
