This post is in answer to the question about round squash that my Blogging Buddy, Charlotte ask me:
“…I’ve never grown round squash. How do you use them?”
I made a post last year with pictures of them on the vine and why I like them. They are so pretty and festive and give my garden an extra bit of cheerfulness.
Plus they keep longer than regular crookneck or zucchini, I’ve had some last a couple of months sitting on the counter.
Round Squash – My Favorite Garden Veggies to grow
As for how I use them, well pretty much most any way that you use regular squash, you can use the round squash: baking, microwaving, frying, in muffins, soups, stir-fry, raw, in salads, grilled, boiled, marinated and so on.
My favorite way is to hollow them out and microwave or bake them and then stuff them with something like rice, beans, stuffing, cubed squash and so on.
I also like baking squash sticks coated in a mix of crushed Ritz crackers & Parmesan cheese for a snack.
My husband’s favorite way to cook them is by slicing them in rounds, coated in corn meal with just a pinch of salt and then he fries them in olive oil. He loves the one ball yellow ones best they are as sweet as crookneck. They are delicious.
If you want the recipes, for any of these, just ask and I’ll post links for them. The recipes are scattered across both my blogs… but I plan to get them moved to my gardening blog some day in the future … I am such a lazy-bones…
