butternut squash picked too early
I am a new gardener. The butternut squash patch seems to be doing well. I picked 2 that seemed to be huge, a nice tannish yellow color and firm. However when I got in from the blinding sun, I realized that they actually still had green stripes. They have been sitting in a sunny window for a week. Question: can I eat them even if they are not quite ripe. I'm particularly intrested in making Squash soup. Butternut squash cooked together with other root veggies and fruit makes a delicious soup. Would this be safe to eat?
