If you love roasting winter squash like Butternut, Delicata, etc but dread peeling and cutting it (or fear losing a finger), here’s a great tip.
- Pierce the skin of the squash with a fork or knife all over.
- Microwave the squash anywhere from 2 to 4 minutes, or longer if needed depending on the size.
- Let it cool, then start peeling and cutting! The microwave softens and loosens the skin, making it fall off more easily.
