What You’ll Need to Peel and Cut Butternut Squash

Sarah Brekke, M.S., Better Homes & Gardens Test Kitchen culinary specialist, says that you only need four kitchen tools to become a pro at how to cut butternut squash:

A sharp chef’s knife.

A vegetable peeler.

A spoon. You’ll use this to help scoop out the seeds and stringy pieces.

A non-slip cutting board

“If your cutting board tends to move around on your countertop as you work, place a damp washcloth or paper towel underneath to help keep it in place,” Brekke advises.
