Tip: How to pick your butternut squash ripe:
Visual clues can tell you a lot about the butternut squash. It should be **beige all over**, the darker the shade, the better. It should have no green patches. The skin should be mat, not shiny, and free of cuts and blemishes
Feel the Squash
The weight of a squash can also give indications about its ripeness. It should “feel heavy for its size”
Tap It gently with your knuckles. You’ll hear a “hollow sound” if it’s ripe.
