Expert Tips

Be sure to use canned coconut milk in this recipe, not cream of coconut. Canned coconut milk is not sweetened; cream of coconut is sweetened and usually used in desserts and drinks.

When selecting butternut squash, look for those that have hard, tough rinds and are heavy for their size. Peeling the squash will be easier if you first microwave it on High for 3 minutes.
