Peeling raw winter squash or pumpkin is not easy, but they are so good roasted you’ll be glad you made the effort. If the peel is tender enough, you can use a vegetable peeler. Otherwise, use a sharp chef’s or butcher knife and a chopping block or cutting board. The knife will be difficult to control. Be sure to cut away from your hands. If the squash is curvy, slice it at the equator of the largest curve, lay the flat side down, and, again, cut away from your hands. If there is any greenish under-peel left, remove it with a vegetable peeler.
