I'm Scott Conant from Scarpetta Restaurants, today we're gonna cut a little bit of butternut squash. So I'm just gonna chop this right in the middle, so I cut it into quarters like that. I will take this very convenient peeler and go just like this, right across, nice and simple. And I'll do the same for the bottom. Now only the bottom has seeds inside the butternut squash. We'll take the seeds out with a spoon and then right into one inch cubes. [SOUND] Easy to work with and the good thing about it is it's nice and uniform cooking for later. [SOUND]
