Summer Squash

If you don't have a vegetable spiralizer, I suggest you get one. There are lots of things you can do with squash, from boats, to grill, to saute. But noodling your squash just makes it fun and interesting to get any reluctant eater to just try it. This year we will be growing zephyr which we nicknamed "zucchini dipped." It is a yellow squash with a green tip. This would be your regular, every day, run of the mill, yellow squash. The second one is called Desi which is a round squash. Have fun with this one. You can cut into coins and make a squash lasagna or hollow it out to make a bowl. The last one is a scallop squash which have a denser consistency to them which actually makes them feel and taste like butter. It's almost as if you are eating a totally different vegetable from the other too. And it's white, so that's cool!

You can also eat squash raw. Not too many people know this. The baby ones are the best for raw snacking with dips etc. So don't discard those in your share!

How To Store

Store in the crisper drawer in the refrigerator. Will keep fresh about 10 days.
