Roasted Sweet Squash

Not sure how to pick the best butternut squash? We’ve got you covered: Choose squash that’s uniformly tan, feels heavy for its size and can’t be poked through with a fingernail. Butternut squash can stay fresh for up to six months if stored in a dark, dry place around 50-55ºF. It should last for two or three months if kept on the counter. Once you cut into the squash, you can store it in a sealed container for up to seven days in the refrigerator or up to a year in the freezer.
