I am in the process of making the butternut squash soup I'd intended to make a week ago (for a snowed-out event.) I'd bought pre-cut butternut squash - already peeled and cut in half. I chopped up the first piece, no problem. When I picked up the second piece it was all slimy, eww!! I threw it out, obviously. But here's my question: since both pieces were in the same wrapper, is the non-slimy piece ok? If I boil it for a long time (which I will be doing, obviously) will it be ok? I don't want to poison myself or anyone else.
