One of the perks of doing a butternut squash breeding project is eating butternut squash. As they store well on my countertops, and the current population of this public participatory landrace is medium sized, I usually only open one at a time. They are used to make a wide and ever widening array of tasty treats. One photo I couldn't find while searching was straight up pumpkin pie even though I make it all the time. Photos added when I have them.
