Squash can be roasted, sautéed, grilled or eaten
raw. Each cooking method will bring a slightly different
flavor. Squash can be used as a substitute for potatoes
in dishes like potato pancakes, but they have more moisture
and should be salted then, the excess liquid drained.
Of course, squash can be used in quick breads, like
zucchini bread, to add moisture and fiber.
Use summer squash, within 2-3 days of receiving it for
optimum freshness. The sugars will turn quickly to starch
within a few days. They will also bruise slightly when
stored, these bruises can be cut off if desired.
