Gone are the days of worrying about how to cut butternut squash. With this easy tutorial, you’ll find that as long as you have a sharp, sturdy knife, it’s easy to do.
We recommend using Cutco’s Vegetable Knife. It’s sharp, wide blade powers through hardy winter squash. When cutting, use a forward and down motion for better control and try to make uniform cuts so that the squash cooks evenly.
