This is not really a post. This is a pure visual “info-graphic” if you will. Someone had asked me yesterday to please get a better image that shows the strings and fibers in winter squash. Here ya go Hannah – I hope this one is more helpful.
BTW, the peeler I use, and have been using for ages, is the OXO Good Grips peeler. It really goes through the hard rinds of winter squash easily. You can find it on Amazon for $8.99. OXO Good Grips Serrated Peeler, Black
I have had mine for about 5 years now!
