I’m on a mission.
I tell people all the time that they’re missing out on butternut squash. (At least the people who’ve never tried it before.)
I encounter people all over…from coast to coast…who have never tried this golden gem of a fruit. (Although I think of it as a vegetable…it has seeds, so it’s technically a fruit, right?)
Whatever you want to call it…it’s healthy. And right now, it’s in season! Boom!
Here’s my challenge to you…
Watch the prices on butternut squash, and when it drops below $.99/lb. grab one and try it. If you see it for less than $.49/lb, you have absolutely no excuse not to buy one and cook it up. That’s a price too good to pass up.
(Note: Not sure what prices will be like this season…these are good prices based on last few years. Not sure if/how the drought has affected butternut squash supply! Also, I’ve seen them as low as $.49 EACH at Aldi…so eyes peeled everyone!)
So this is me…on my mission…to get those of you who’ve never cooked with butternut squash to give it a try. Below are a slew of recipes and “how-tos” that will help you on your quest!
