FAQs about butternut squash
If you are roasting the butternut squash in the oven, you can leave the skin on as it will turn softer through cooking. If you want to cook it without the skin, you can also take it out before roasting it. Just cut off the ends, cut it in the middle and then remove the skin with a peeler.
Squash is one of the oldest known crops dating back 10,000 years and originating in Mexico and Central America. The name squash means uncooked or eaten raw from the Narragansett Native American word "askutasquash". Natives would eat the squash raw as well.
Butternut squash can be a filling for ravioli, tacos, empanadas, or served on top of pizza and flatbread. It can also be added to soups, risotto, and curries, and baked in breads and pies or other desserts. It pairs well with spices like sage, cinnamon, thyme, and bay leaf. It can be a side or stuffed with meats like ground beef and sausage and used with nuts to combine each other's sweet taste.
