    Wtf?!?! Spent the whole time watching in disbelief. Biggest tip I can tell people is to just roast it whole. It makes life sooooooooo much easier & it tastes sweeter!!!

    Why would you peel butternut squash, the best way to cook them is just cut in half, remove seeds, oil, season, bake as is then you just scoop the cooked squash out.

    put on latex glove when preparing butternut squash. some people will be allergic to certain chemicals in the squash, they will lose a layer of skin on their palms.

    Or you know you could just cut the thing in half, deseed it and roast it. No reason to peel it.

    0:36 that gave me major anxiety... like if you're gonna do that then make sure to not cut anywhere near your fingers or anything... like have the squash verticle with the cleaver going down

    We usually heat the butternut up a bit either in the microwave or in boiling water to soften the skin a bit. That way its like peeling a potato
