Butternut squash splurge

butternut squash on cedar table
I managed to supplement our butternut squash supply by about 35 various sized beauties grown by a friend of mine for the grand total of 20 dollars.

I also talked him out of this nice cedar table for an extra 50 bucks.

The butternut squash in your picture look white. Are they really white? I have seen only gold/brown butternut. Is this a new variety I have been missing? Is there a difference in flavor?

Mark took that photo soon before dark, so it tended to whiten the squash, but they're really the color you're used to. We've tried every winter squash out there (just about) and think that plain old butternut has, by far, the best flavor!
