Butternut Squash

Product Info

1 butternut squash

 

How To Treat It

  • Look for squash that are firm, with long necks for more flesh and less seed cavity
  • Whole butternut squash stored at room temperate will keep for one to three months
  • Peeled squash should be stored in the fridge and used within five days.


How To Cook With It

Butternut squash is rich, buttery and slightly nutty flavour - used in both sweet and savoury dishes.  The seeds can also be used - lightly roast with salt and some warm spiced for a snack.

Roasted or puréed, butternut complements meat, while salty cheeses such as feta or Parmesan offset its sugary nature. It’s often used as a savoury filling for ravioli or to flavour an risotto, or is stuffed with rice and roasted whole in a bake. Infused with cinnamon or nutmeg, it’s the ideal filling for an autumnal pie.
