Butternut Pumpkins

Butternut pumpkins are pear-shaped with creamy, buff coloured skin and orange flesh. The dense, dry texture of the flesh is very versatile and can be steamed, boiled, baked, roasted or sautéed. The butternut pumpkin has a naturally sweet flavour that is often enhanced with spices and syrups, but works just as well in savoury dishes.  They are available all year-round.

Choose pumpkins that are firm and brightly coloured. Good quality pumpkins should be free from cracks, soft spots or excessive scarring. Uncut pumpkins can be stored for several months in a cool, dry, dark place. Once cut, however, they should be wrapped in plastic and stored in the fridge.

Preparation Tip: The neck of a butternut pumpkin contains only flesh, the seeds are in the larger, bulbous section. To prepare, first cut the neck from the pumpkin with a serrated knife. Peel it and slice as desired, using a paring knife for smaller pieces. Halve the larger end and scoop out the seeds. Slice into wedges and finish peeling.
