I have learned some amazing storage facts about Butternut and Spaghetti Squash that are EXTREMELY useful at this time! After I found out the facts below, I immediately called my husband and him pick up a few of each to add to our food supply.
This is a perfect time to add a few squash to your pantry items. They store well, easy to cook and taste amazing!
Did you know?
1. You can store whole unpeeled butternut and spaghetti squash in a cool, dark dry place for up to 1-2 months!
*NOTE- You can store the whole unpeeled & uncooked squash in the refrigerator but it will only last 1-2 weeks. It actually lasts longer in a dry, dark and cool place than in the refrigerator.
2. Cooked these two types of squash will last in an airtight container or covered in plastic wrap for up to 3 to 5 days. Refrigerate your squash within 2 hours of cooking to prevent bacteria growth.
3. When picking out your Spaghetti or Butternut Squash, choose a firm, unblemished squash that ideally has a stem intact. See my blog posts on my recipes for cooking Spaghetti Squash and Butternut Squash!
