Squash is so easy to put up and of course is so yummy and good for you!  Start by washing your squash and then slicing it.  I like to use my mandolin slicer for nice uniform slices.  Label your bags.  this works out better when they are flat!

Let the kids shake, shake, shake, until your squash is all coated with flour.  Then you can squeeze as much air out of the bags as you can and re-seal them. Then throw them I your freezer!!!

Recipes:

Fried Squash

  • Get your grease hot.
  • Get your bag out of the freezer and whack it on the counter to loosen up the stuck together squash.  You can let it defrost it a little, but I am impatient sometimes!
  • Put your squash in the grease and fry away!
  • When it has browned you can strain it on a paper towel and salt to taste.

Fresh Squash and Onion

  • Use about 5 to 6 medium sized squash.
  • Wash and cut into chunks.
  • Place in a pot of boiling water (Just enough to cover the squash)
  • add salt, pepper 1 stick of butter and 1/2 an onion cut in slices or rings, what ever you prefer.  I like nice big pieces!
  • Boil just a few minutes until squash is soft and onions are translucent.
