So for this recipe, I use 24 ounces of butternut squash, a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil, kosher salt, ground cumin, dried parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, and a couple of pinches of cayenne, which is enough to give it a nice, mild, pleasant heat, but isn't burny in any way.
Melt 3 Tbs. of the butter in a 10-inch straight-sided sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the butternut squash and a large pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally at first and then more frequently as the squash browns, until the squash is tender and lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
- Place the squash in a pan full of cold water with a teaspoon of salt.
- Bring to the boil and cook for 10-15 minutes. Drain and place back in the pan.

A: Yes, eating raw butternut squash is safe. It is sometimes grated, or sliced thinly, into salads or coleslaws. See our page on Butternut Squash for nutritional information, and benefits.
5. Bake: Cut the butternut squash in half lengthwise and place flesh side down on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake at 400 F for 30 to 40 minutes. The squash will be soft and tender when it has cooked through.
To ensure this, place the cubes in a microwave-safe dish and add about 1/4 inch of water to the bottom. Cover the dish tightly with plastic wrap and and slice a few slits in it to let steam escape. Microwave the cubes on high for 6 to 7 minutes -- for up to 2 pounds of squash -- or until fork tender.
- Cut the pumpkin in half, discarding the stringy insides.
- Peel the pumpkin and cut it into chunks.
- Place in a saucepan and cover with water.
- Bring to a boil and cook until the pumpkin chunks are tender.
- Let the chunks cool, and then chop, puree or mash.
Cook for 5 minutes, stirring once or twice. Lower the heat to medium and continue cooking for another 10 minutes or longer, stirring occasionally, until the sides of the cubes vary from light to dark brown and the squash is tender all the way through when poked with a fork.

- Place squash, cut sides down, in a 9x13 baking dish. Pour water into dish around squash halves.
- Bake in the preheated oven until tender and easily pierced with a fork, about 1 1/2 hours. Carefully remove the skin with a fork; it should be very easy to remove.
Slice off the stem and bottom ends of the squash, so that both ends are flat. Slice the squash in half, just where the thinner end begins to widen around the middle. Turn each half so that a flat end rests against the cutting board. Use a sharp serrated peeler or paring knife to peel off the skin in downward strokes.
Use a sharp knife to carefully cut away the peel from the squash. Cut the squash into sticks like French fries. Arrange squash pieces on a baking sheet and season with salt. Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, turning the fries over halfway through baking.

Coat the frozen balls in flour, egg, and then bread crumbs and freeze again until solid. When ready to fry, preheat oil in a deep-fryer to 350 degrees F. Fry balls for 10 to 15 seconds until just light golden. Drain on paper towels before serving.
Regular whole butter has a low smoking and burning point. For that reason, pan-frying and sautéing should be done over moderate, never high, heat. For the best results in sautéing and pan-frying, heat the pan first, then add the butter; swirl to quickly coat the pan, then add the food to be sautéed or fried.
- In a large bowl, beat the eggs, then add the Coca-Cola and granulated sugar.
- Sift 2 cups of the flour, the baking powder, and salt and add to the Coca-Cola mixture.
- Heat the oil to 375°F in a deep fryer.
- Drop 1 1/2-inch dough balls into the fryer and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden.
