Extremely weird butternut squash reaction

OH so glad I found this post. I was peeling butternut squash tonight and had my hand swell up and the skin tighten and feel like I had a layer of hardened wax on it. No amount of washing would get rid of it. I have never had a reaction to the peel before. So glad I am not alone. Making a butternut squash soup. I was worried about eating it. But now I know that I just need to wear gloves when peeling it. Phew! Still though after reading this I am nervous to eat the soup.

Quine thanks for the welcome and the link. There were so many pages to look through and as I did a bit of looking I could not find an article with the answers I was looking for. The more I read the more I can';t wait to use my IB!

Sounds great I will have to give it a try sometime. But I am with CanadaGirl I love my ice cream too! Although ice cream does not always love me. I am at times dairy sensitive. Except yogurt does not bother me.

I can't wait to make creamy soup to try it out. That is such a pain to transfer to the blender then to another clean pot. So time consuming and dirties a lot of dishes. If I don't find the pamphlet I will try the website thanks for the tip.

Thanks everyone for the responses. I am getting excited to try it out. Milkshakes seem like a good start. Better whip out the ole ice cream maker. I have some fresh fruit from Kelowna mmm that would be good in there.

People keep mentioning mayo. I have never made my own mayo. How long does it last? That is what holds me back from making it that I would have to eat it all in a few days.

I have not yet found my instructions pamphlet. I took everything out of the box and got crazy busy visiting. So 5 days later finally cleaning up no pamphlet to be found. It's got to be around here some where. I just wanted to see what different things people do. Besides soup and smoothies.

Hello everyone I just got an early Christmas present a Kitchen Aid immersion blender. Not something I had wanted and not quite sure what all to do with it. What do you do with your immersion blender?
