Get thee an organic butternut squash!
Preheat your oven to 400º.
Back to the squash. Cut off the stem end.
Cut your squash in half. Be careful as these babies are not easy to cut.
Using a spoon, scoop & scrape the seeds & guts out (this reminds me of carving a pumpkin!!).
All nice & clean & ready for the oven......
Lay your butternut squash flesh side down onto a baking tray. Butternut squash likes to sweat as they bake, so be sure your pan has a raised edge.
Into your preheated oven they go for 40-50 minutes.
They get beautiful-er & beautiful-er..... When they are ready, the flesh will be easily pierced with a fork, and the skins will take on a browned & wrinkled look.
WOW! Look at that bright orange roasted flesh. Yum!
Set them aside to cool.
