There are plenty of advantages to the cooler weather and chief among them in my book: it’s butternut squash season (second only to boot season). While this ubiquitous squash is available year-round, fall is really prime season. When shopping, look for squash that feels slightly heavy for its size. There should be no bruising or mold on the skin. Be sure to store butternut squash in a cool, dark place and never keep it in the refrigerator.
