    Thanks so much. I just got a Pressurecooker recently, so I’m learning how to cook with it. This was so very helpful!

    Thanks, I needed this for the butternut squash mac and cheese I am making.

    Just baste it with some brown sugar or olive oil and finish it in the oven to caramelize it.

    The title of the recipe was “how to cook a whole butternut squash”. And yet the 1st instructions were “cut it up”

  5. VeggieTater

    I try to buy them small enough and just cook it whole in the IP… even easier when you have carpal tunnel!

  6. Greta

    worked perfectly! Thanks!

    My Mom cuts it in half and cooks it in the microwave for 7 minutes. The skin slides right off but it is still firm enough to cube and use in recipes.

    I assume the same thing could be done with similar results for a buttercup squash?

      Omg buttercup squash

        Does buttercup have about the same hardness as butternut? If so, I think this method would work just fine. If it’s softer or thinner, then maybe decrease the time by a minute or two. Let us know how it works out!
