How to peel butternut squash:
Cut ends off with a large, sharp chef’s knife, then cut squash in half width-wise. Place the cut end of one half on cutting board and cut strips of skin starting from the top and pushing down with the knife. Repeat with other half. Scoop out seeds, cut into slabs, and then into cubes. Medium dice is about 3/4 inch.
