BUTTERNUT 3 WAYS
DID YOU KNOW?
In the mid 1940s, Charles Leggett of Stow, Massachusetts, USA bred the first butternut.
His aim was to develop a good-tasting squash that could feed a family. Leggett took a gooseneck squash, which was long and gangly, and crossed it with other squashes.
The result was a squash with an interior as smooth as butter and taste as sweet as a nut,
hence the name ‘butternut’.
