Expert Tips

Butternut squash has the same shape as a lightbulb or pear-it's wider at one end than the other. It usually weighs between 2 and 3 pounds, and its shell is golden yellow to camel colored.

When served with turkey and wild rice, this squash makes a satisfying and flavorful holiday meal. Add a fresh sliced orange and onion salad on Bibb lettuce, drizzled with raspberry vinaigrette. End the meal with parfait glasses filled with peppermint ice cream and hot fudge sauce, topped with a fresh mint leaf.
