During the Autumn winter squashes are in season and are at a great price. I just picked some acorn squash here at my local grocery store last night for 59¢ a lb. Which is just a great price. However these bad boys are hard to cut. If you have never cut a hard winter squash here is a very helpful video from Chow.com that shows you how it is done…
There are two methods
Saw into it with a serrated knife.
Hack into it with a cleaver.
I tried the sawing method…yeah that did not work so well for me. The hacking method with a meat cleaver worked great however for me. Give it a try and let us know which way works for you?
Hi Heidi here, I am a über (one of my favorite words by the way) busy work at home mom. I am married to my high-school sweetheart and together we are raising 5 lovely children in the "Cowboy State" Wyoming. We however are not cowboys or cowgirls, in fact we live nowhere near a ranch, but in my spare time I do enjoy going to "The Walmart" on a Saturday morning and gawking at the cowboys as they come into town for provisions (shhh don't tell my husband I said that!). In my spare time I enjoy cooking (in my crock-pot of course), gardening, reading, watching chick flicks, shopping, playing with my pets and going to coffee with my girlfriends.
