5 star rated recipe! Got same based recipe years ago from a South African recipe book. Busy making it right now with mutton. The best way to peel a butternut is with a potato peeler or you may (if you have a big enough microwave steamer) steam it sealed in microwave. The steam will cause the skin to soften. Keep sealed as skin must remain moist surrounded by steam. When fork tender, just break it up, remove seeds and add to your stew or casserole. What I have done right now is halved my unpeeled butternut, scooped out the seeds (to plant) and placed in into casserole, unpeeled on top of meat and potatoes. I love to leave my skin on for nutrient density. Mmm, love your picture!
