It’s fall, which means tis’ the season for butternut squash! This past Saturday I woke up early and made homemade roasted butternut squash soup. It was perfect. The leaves were blowing outside my window. My beautiful roommates were all asleep, so I sat in silence and sipped on some tea while the squash baked, remembering all the things I am grateful for
As I prepared the soup, I remembered how last summer my post on ‘How to Cut a Pineapple’ got more views than most of my recipe posts! Therefore, I figured there was a need for how to cut specific fruits and vegetables, and thought I’d provide

Step one: Rinse the butternut squash and place on a steady clean surface.
Step two: Using a large knife, cut both ends of the butternut squash off (very thin cuts, about ¼ of an inch), creating even surfaces on both ends.
Step three: Skin the squash with a vegetable peeler.
Step four: Stand the squash up on one end and cut the squash down the middle with a large knife.
Step five: Use a spoon to scrape the seeds and additional pulp out of the squash. Save the seeds and set aside if you want to enjoy toasted seeds!
Step six: Lay each half with the center on the cutting board, and cut each half in two.
Step seven: Cut the quarters into long 1-inch strips, and then chop each strip into cubes, or whatever size you desire!
The Finished Product- delicious fresh squash ready for cooking!
