“This process is so very easy. No peeling! Take a look! Squash is great for pureeing, roasting and baking. Once cooked and pureed, it can be used in soups, main dishes, vegetable side dishes, even breads, muffins, custards and pies. The skin has many nutrients so go ahead and use it. Or peel and discard. But you will never know it's in the puree. Dress any cooked winter squash with butter and herbs, a cream sauce, cheese sauce, maple syrup, candied ginger, spices and or nuts.”
