    Do you have to cook the butternut squash first? Or is it just raw cut up butternut squash?

    I don’t normally comment, but no one has mentioned how amazing this is. I made this stew tonight, and my picky 5 kids LOVED it, 3 of them asked for seconds. Really Good, thanks

    Looks delish! Wondering if this needs to defrost before going into the crockpot, or from frozen?

    I cooked from frozen. Easily the best recipe I’ve gotten from this site this far. Delicious and very simple. My son loved it, asked for seconds and said it was now his favorite dish.
