Boiled. Cut into cubes, just cover with water, then simmer gently unti cooked (8-10 mins). Add the cooking water back into your recipe to make use of the nutrients that may have leached into it during the cooking time.

Once it's cooled down, or place in cold water then drain to stop cooking process. Cut into small chunks.


1. Cut acorn or butternut squash in half, scoop out seeds

2. Place halves face down in a pan and cover with an inch of water

3. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 40 minutes to 1 hour - be sure the “shell/skin” puckers and halves feel soft then scoop squash “meat” out of the shell

4. Place squash "meat" into your choice of appliance for pureeing and begin pureeing.

5. Add water as necessary to achieve a smooth, thin consistency.
