The summer squash onslaught has begun! As good as it is to see them appear, it won't be long before we start hearing, "not summer squash again!"
We grow basically three varieties of summer squash. Green zucchini, yellow squash, and that space-ship white thing called a pattypan. Pretty much any summer squash can be used interchangeably although they all have different flavors and some are better for some things than others (for instance, it's hard to stuff a pattypan although Maggie insists it can be done).
A favorite is having a delicious stir fry with lots of fresh veggies, including a variety of summer squash. We like our veggies in stir fry, raw in salads, on the grill, on pizza, diced up in spaghetti sauce (or other favorite Italian style dishes), sauteed with butter and onions, and some things we like to dust in seasoned flour and pan fry. Then there's vegetable soup, salsa, relish, chutney ... I even know people who blend this stuff and use it in smoothies. What you can do with summer veggies is almost limitless.
One of our favorite things to do is make Stuffed Zucchini. Is that recipe on the recipe page yet? I'll look. We had some Saturday and it was marvelous.
