Butternut Squash

Yesterday I posted how to bake a squash and thought I would include pictures of the butternut squash I did as well. This is a pretty tasty squash, it took almost 2 hours to get soft and it was dryer than acorn squash.
Please excuse the blurry pics...

A friend of mine was telling me about butternut squash last week and she makes hers in the microwave and and then scoops out the inner part and eats it.

What does this taste like? It reminds me of a sweet potato and I imagine that it has a sweet taste. What does it taste like? Is it like potato or what?

Not like a potato. It does have a sweet taste. I think if you've had one squash you've had them all... but they do have different tastes/textures just don't very too much. I would say this is more like a pumpkin flavor, as it is sweet, maybe close to a sweet potato, but not as grainy. If that makes sense.
You can use the microwave, I tend not to as I believe microwaves kill nutrients, so I use it as little as possible. But heard it cooks them nicely.

Thanks. I have had pumpkin soup before so I can imagine the taste. Maybe I'll try it out the next time I'm out shopping.
