Mrs. Turner's Squash Skillet
From Statesboro Market2Go
<p>Found on “Twice Bloomed Wisteria” blog from a homeschooling mother who lives on a farm in Central Mississippi. She writes: <br /> “A few years ago, my Momma said she wished she could find some green tinted patty pan squash so she could make Mrs. Turner’s Squash Skillet. Mrs. Turner is an older lady in town who was originally from somewhere else. She had some different ways of doing things than many of the people who were born and raised here. One of those different ways was planting patty pan squash when everyone else here only planted yellow squash. Mrs. Turner once shared her squash and recipe with my mother. I, of course, found seeds and planted them. When the squash was ready, I shared it with Mrs. Turner and Momma and she shared the recipe with me.</p> <p>Here is that recipe. <br /> You can tell that this is a truly Southern recipe because sugar is added to vegetables. Sugar is added to everything here, <span class="caps">EXCEPT</span> the cornbread. <a href="http://statesboromarket2go.locallygrown.net/recipes/1614" target="_blank"><strong>Cornbread</strong></a>, by the way, is the perfect accompaniment to this squash dish. Anyway, if you feel uncomfortable adding sugar to vegetables, don’t do it or add less, which is what I do. The squash will still be good.<br /> Here are some other things I know about summer squash. You may substitute any summer squash in any summer squash recipe. There will be subtle taste and consistency issues, but the recipe will not fail or taste terrible."</p>Source: Twice Bloomed Wisteria (Entered by Market Manager)
