Sticky hands from peeling butternut squash

LVLisa | Oct 26, 2012 09:29 AM

Whenever I peel butternut squash, I get a sticky substance on my hands that is impossible to get off. Even after cleaning them well with soap and water, this substance is still there and when it dries it shrinks on my hands and feels very tight. I can feel it on my hands for a few days after and it drives me crazy!!!

I love to cook with butternut squash, but hate peeling it because of what happens to my hands - please let me know if you have any suggestions for what do to about this!
