Winter Squash and Pumpkins
What "tool" do you use to cut up a hard winter squash like butternut or acorn or pumpkins like long island cheese and mauna di Chioggia? I have used a heavy duty chefs knife on butternuts and acorns but they are so hard and my strength is so weak I am afraid of doing real damage to myself. Looking on line I see that you can bake or microwave whole to soften but only after piercing the rind. Unless I use a very long nail and a hammer, I don't see me being able to do that. So I come to the folks I know who know EVERYTHING about cooking. I just know you will have a solution for me. Currently, I am considering a chain or reciprocating saw.
Thanks so much.
