I have to be honest, when I was a child Kaddu was something I avoided in our home. It just seemed boring and was also a vegetable, so it was definitely on the no-go list. As I’ve gotten older it’s become something I really look forward to. Between my dad and my uncle’s gardens there is always a wealth of butternut squash to be shared toward the end of the summer months. It seems so rewarding to grown your own squash, cook it and feed your family with it. Even as an adult, I always ask my dad to peel and cut the butternut squash. It just seemed like so much work and I was quite intimidating. Eventually I just had to suck it up and figure it out on my own. It doesn’t really matter how you get to the diced squash, just as long as you do right? If you are a perfectionist – this is a great tutorial on how to cut a butternut squash.
