Can I keep cut-up raw butternut squash in the fridge, and if so, for how long?
Amanda is a co-founder of Food52.
Yes. Cover it -- put it in a container, ideally -- and you can keep it for at least 4 days.
Does the same hold true for cut-up peeled sweet-potatoes?
One of the farms at our wintertime farmers' market sells, in addition to whole squash, bags of peeled and seeded butternut squash segments. I bought some last year on a few occasions, and it kept well for several days in the fridge in its plastic wrapping.
Sweet potatoes brown after cutting, so I wouldn't store them this way.
I bought fresh butternut squash to make baby food. How long can I keep it uncooked in refrigerator????

Well played. You deserve a cookie.
