    Default SQUASH

    depends on the size I am thinking about an hour, but just check once in awhile with a knife for tenderness.

    I have baked it in the oven, but I have also cooked it in the microwave. Do the same thing for both...add a little water and cook about 30 min. In micro cover with a damp paper towel while cooking.

    For butternut squash we peel it and chop it into pieces. We then steam it until it is soft. I have a friend who microwaves it and then steams it so the process is quicker. I bet you could just microwave it and skip the steaming part.

    After the pieces are soft mash with a potato masher. We add brown sugar. My friends add butter and brown sugar.

    I hope this helps.

    ( I was given an acorn squash. I believe I have never tasted one before. My sister-in-law said you bake acorn squash in the oven.)
