My grandmother says “anything is easy once you know how”!  Here are the steps with some pictures.

Put in microwave for 2 minutes to help soften the squash.

2. Making sure to use a sharp knife….cut off ends.

3. Cut into thick slices and scoop out the stringy parts and seeds

4. Peel outer shell off using either very sharp vegetable peeler or knife.

5. Cut into cubes and use in recipe as instructed.

Cubes can also be frozen and used at a later time.
