Butternut Squash are bottle-shaped and have a finely textured bright orange flesh. Unlike Summer Squash, which are picked immaturely when the skins are tender, Butternut Squash have hard, thick skins. Thus, only the sweet flesh can be eaten. The delicious yellow meat is reminiscent of sweet potatoes and can actually replace them in most recipes.

Melissa’s Organic Butternut Squash is good source of vitamins A and C, potassium, and iron. You can easily integrate this vegetable into your diet because they can be used in a variety of different ways, whether they are baked, steamed, pureed, or cooked in soups and stews.

Choose squash that have a hard, deep-colored rind free of blemishes or moldy spots. Tender skin indicates immaturity or poor quality. The hard skin protects the flesh and allows it to store longer than summer squash. Store Butternut Squash in a cool, preferably dark, well-ventilated area for up to one month. Wrap cut pieces in plastic and refrigerate up to five days.
