Stuck in a Cooking Rut?

Many times we get stuck in a cooking rut and have a very hard time digging ourselves out. Variety is important. In honor of National Fruit and Vegetable month, I wanted to wrap up this month’s blog with a farewell to June and feature the famous Butternut Squash.

Hopefully this month’s blog has helped show some easier ways to prepare and cook foods in a new, fast way.

Steps to cooking a Butternut Squash

1. Wash butternut squash.
2. Using a fork, poke holes in the squash to make the skin easier to peel. After poking the squash, place in the microwave for 2 minutes to loosen the skin.

4. Cut along the squash where the neck begins to enlarge.
