why are my squashes too hard to cut



They always are, nothing wrong with them. Amazing how something with the texture of concrete before its cooked turns into something quite soft and mushy after cooking. Try a very sharp breadknife, that's what I always use, although there have been times when i've wished for a pneumatic drill...

Sturdy, mid-size kitchen knife, with a newly sharpened edge, and maybe dragoon someone with strong wrists! Nicking the skin with a sharp fork or ice pick seems to help, too. Those hard shells are what helps them keep nearly to spring.
