How do you peel butternut squash? Or am I making something big out of something simple? Sounds great.

Re: peeling butternut squash..... I try to choose butternut squash with a smaller round end and a longer neck. Then, I just cut off the round end and set it aside. (You can use it later as you might acorn squash.) Then I cut off the top of the squash (the end where the stem was attached). Then I set the prepared "neck" piece on one of its flat ends on a cutting board (making a tall "column") and I slice the skin off in small sections down towards the cutting board. Make sense? If the neck is really long, you can cut it in half so that you have two columns, making it not so unwieldy.
