How to cut Butternut Squash
It is not easy to cut butternut squash. However, after few tries I found an easy way on how to cut butternut squash. I simply cut butternut squash in half. I keep my hand on the top of the squash and I slide the knife from top to bottom. For the second half of the squash I do the same. As a result I don’t cut my fingers. Then I cut the end parts. I didn’t use the peeler to cut the squash. However, peeler might be used to cut the squash in different way.
