Winter squash comes in all forms – butternut and acorn are two common varieties – and you’ll find a plethora at farmers markets and grocery stores this time of year.

Fortunately, this fruit, often considered a vegetable, is easy to put to use, and it’s a healthy option for the whole family as it’s a good source of vitamins C and A, as well as iron and riboflavin.

Before cooking it, you’ll want to cut into your winter squash. Carefully hack off the stem with a hefty knife or cleaver, and then smash your chosen instrument lengthwise into the squash’s rind. Once you’ve split the squash, clean the seeds and membrane (the bright orange stringy pulp) out of the cavity using a large spoon. Now it’s ready for baking, sautéing, roasting, boiling, simmering, steaming and microwaving.
