Step 2: Prepare the Squash
Scrub the squash, then peel it with a vegetable peeler. Cut off the top and bottom ends. Chop off the base of the squash, then split the base down the middle to expose the core of seeds. Use a large metal spoon to scrape away the seeds and guts. Consider baking the seeds as a snack! Dice the squash into 1-inch cubes.
