comment Why did butternut squash make my fingers dry and yellow?
As I dislike wearing gloves while cooking I'll probably go bare-handed the next time I handle squash, but if the problem recurs I might have to reconsider. About the soup's consistency, you're correct about liquids. My dissatisfaction lies in that after the squash was pureed with the prescribed amount of stock it was still quite thick and suffered the "exploding geyser" problem. Nothing like shrapnel of hot squash on your hand to keep you alert. Also I don't think I got much additional roasted flavor out of the experiment.
