I love butternut squash it is a great food that can be eaten all year round and it will go well with most hot meals. Butternut squash is becoming one of the most popular and widely available forms of winter squash. This can be found all across the world in lots of different styles of food it crops up in recipes for stews, pasta dishes, risottos, soups and curries. When baked and mashed you can have it as a substitute for potatoes or mix with potatoes as i do for extra taste and colour. Looks ****** The looks of a butternut squash can be strange you would think that the on that is fatter has the most in it, this is wrong because the ... Read the complete review

It's official - the ninth of April is "Gays and Butternut Squash" day. I kid you not. I'm currently in the middle of re-thinking my awful diet that is totally void of mostly anything good for you. In this re-think I have discovered a few nice items, so I'm now totally up for grabbing the oddest looking item when I'm at Tesco to try it out. Gay and Butternut Squash day began like any other. Work, where I tell everyone to go do horrid things to themselves, then a joyous jaunt to the land of Tesco goodness. While there I spotted this odd looking and even weirder named object- The Butternut Squash. Liking butter, nuts and ... Read the complete review

As autumn turns to winter my thoughts turn to comfort foods and in particular home made soups.

It is rounded at the bottom and then thinner at the top and looks a bit like a pumpkin on the outside with a similar type skin. It's a really easy vegetable to work with. When I put it in a ...

Butternut squash is a vegetable I had heard of but never tried until relatively recently. It is one of those vegetables that I looked at many times in the supermarket but never put it into my trolley, there was something odd almost funny looking about it. To be honest it always looked to me like one of those "rude" vegetables that are made fun of, they resemble the gourd famous in the Life of Brian. I originally bought Butternut Squash to use to make vegetable purees for my youngest son, about 4 months ago. I had read in articles that it would blend down very well into a puree and would make an excellent first food and indeed it did. When I bought ... Read the complete review

I knew of the butternut squash and had seen it on the Marks and Spencer adverts featured in a Risotto, but I hadn't tasted it more than once until recently... I bought a squash from Tesco, medium size for about £1.30. It proceeded to sit in the fridge for a couple of weeks until I finally decided to put it to use. The great thing about squash is it keeps very well in the fridge, especially if you haven't cut into it. Preparing the squash is quite simple; give it a good peel untill the orange flesh can be seen, chop and scoop out the seeds from the larger part. Chop into pieces depending on what you're doing with it. My first recipe was ... Read the complete review
