Cooking Up the Season; Butternut Squash

— Written By

The fall of the year brings about so many changes and lots of comfort food. This is the time of the year when the weather is turning cooler and we tend to start looking to food for comfort and warmth. There are many different varieties of fresh produce left to try in the fall. One of my favorites is all of the winter squash you see popping up in markets and grocery stores this time a year. Butternut squash is one variety of winter squash you most likely have seen in the grocery store but maybe you didn’t purchase it because you didn’t know how to cook it. Butternut squash offers many health benefits and you can learn all about its nutritional value, selection, storage, and how to prepare in our butternut squash video.
