Dehydrating butternut squash takes a little prep work but is loaded with vitamin A, followed by vitamin C, folate, vitamin E, vitamin K, Niacin, and trace amounts of Pantothenic Acid and Thiamin, so it's well worth your time and energy.
In the butternut squash's mineral department potassium ranks high, followed by calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, with trace amounts of selenium,manganese, and zinc.
Butternut squash also contains Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids too.
Although butternut squash can be difficult to peel, it's well worth the effort!
This vegetable needs to be steamed lightly first, to aid in the dehydrating process.
Butternut squash makes a great soup, and purées well for sauces, but my main use of it is for my Chicken Chow dog food!
If using frozen butternut squash, ignore steps 1 and 2.
I'd like to make a note here that I have not tried dehydrating puréed frozen butternut squash, but I think it would work just fine on the fruit roll sheets! Just let it thaw out first ...
I would like to add here that it's better to have even-sized pieces of the squash on the dehydrator trays -- it dries out better and at the same rate, so you're NOT taking off the small pieces and still running the dehydrator to finish drying the larger pieces. Don't let my photo of the bigger piece of butternut squash on the dehydrator tray (shown at the very top of this page) lead you astray! Oops, sorry about that... :-)
