With a slight chill in the air, our minds naturally drift to thoughts of fall harvests, hayrides, and bountiful displays of pumpkins and squash—their colors are symbolic of the rich hues of autumn. Butternut Squash, the most popular winter squash of all, is a fall favorite and abundant this time of year. There are so many varieties, and countless ways to cook them. Whether baked, chopped, roasted, or pureed, its smooth, creamy texture, and buttery flavor make it an ideal food for the cool fall months and a staple on fall menus.
