FAQs about Butterkin squash
Butterkin squash is packed with good nutrients for a healthy diet. It's low in fat and sodium, and it's packed with fiber, which is important for regular digestion and a filling feeling. Butterkin squash also contains potassium, which helps promote muscle functioning. It is a great source of vitamin A, which is important for normal vision, the immune system, and the reproductive system.
Butterkin squash has similar requirements to other winter squashes and is grown outdoors once the spring frost has gone by. Seeds can also be started three weeks to a month in advance inside and taken outside once the weather is warm. Vines grow about 10 feet and produce one to two fruits. The Butterkin squash is available from late summer to early fall.
It's important to have a good knife when cutting any hard squash or pumpkin, such as a Butterkin squash, due to its harder exterior. Slice the squash in half and remove the seeds from the middle with a spoon. Place the flat part on the cutting board. Use the knife to peel from the middle of the squash outward. You can also soften the squash in the microwave if needed. Poke some holes in the squash with a fork and place it in the microwave for three minutes, which will soften it enough to make cutting much easier. Let it cool before cutting it to avoid burning your hands.
