(NAPSA) - Fall markets are awash in squash! With so many to choose from, it's easy to get confused. Michelle McAdoo, contributor to food & family magazine, has demystified the many varieties and put the sweet butternut on center stage.
Butternut Squash Tips
Choose squash that's heavy for its size with no blemishes or moldy spots. Check the stem end for signs of rotting.
To prepare, chop off either end of butternut squash and peel with knife. Slice in half to remove seeds and cut as desired. Squash can be prepared a day in advance and stored covered in the fridge.
Store whole squash in a cool, dark place for up to a month.
