Butternut squash


Butternut Squash is a member of the Curcurbita moschata family that also includes ponca, waltham, pumpkin, and calabaza. The orange-fleshed winter squash delivers a flavorful dense flesh. The butternut squash provides the most value of any squash, dollar for dollar because it is thin-skinned, has a small cavity with fewer seeds and less waste than with most other squashes. The butternut squash benefits from baking which develops and deepens the flavor.
