Butternut squash is one of my favorites, the rich orange squash bakes well, and you can use the leftovers to make fabulous soups. Butternut squash grills up great too. Last summer I had a butternut squash vine and grew several beautiful squash. If you do not wash them, they can store for quite a long time. I just baked my last one up this fall.
Did you know that butternut squash is also known as butternut pumpkin in Australia and New Zealand? It actually has a flavor that is similar to that of a pumpkin.
