And now you know. It looks about like this.

Butternut Squash

After cutting the squash, I steam them until soft. Then, I press them through the food mill (lower right). That took about 4 hours to do.

Just to put that into perspective, that’s enough squash to make 19 pumpkin pies. mmmmm pumpkin pie. I took 10 cups and made 5 pies for our harvest party. The rest are in the freezer for future pie-making.
