What is Butternut Squash?
Butternut squash is one of the most popular and modern varieties. Butternuts are known for their long neck and bowling pin or bell-like shape. Their smooth skin is yellow and hardend when matured. The skin is also edible when cooked. The long neck of the Butternut squash has a solid orange flesh that makes it easy for peeling and slicing. The bulbous part contains a petite seed which is surrounded by a layer of orange flesh.
When cooked, the flesh of the Butternut is tender and offers a mild squash flavour with sweet and nutty nuances.
