I don’t claim to be an expert; just sharing what’s easiest for me.  I’ve tried my share of other methods (The Kitchn, etc. . .) , but I just find my own  to be  the easiest and I think you will too!

 

Step 1: Cut it in half. Do not cut off the ends! They are ‘handles’! easiest-way-to-cube-butternut-squash-halves

Step 2: Cut the skin off each half with a knife (haven’t had any success with veggie peelers). I don’t worry about cutting off too much of the veggie along with the skin.  When it comes to cubing a butternut squash, you’ve gotta pick your battles!
