How about zucchini pickles?

Maybe a test batch, to eat "fresh".

Wonder if they'd keep their crunch after pickling. Maybe for freezer pickles. Good idea, AB.

Thanks, GG! I love freezer pickles, and it sounds like these remain crunchy.

If you want crunch look for a recipe that contains alum in the list of ingredients.

If the squash are getting large then I would slice them lengthwise and make pickle spears, slice off most of the seeds in the center and just pickle the firm flesh and skin.

Good luck!

I'm thinking the way I make cuke freezer pickles might work for these too. Kosher salt, let sit for a few hours, drain, rinse. The cukes are always nice and crunchy.

As usual, I made enough for 8.

I mandolined the remaining two squash, they're salted and will probably become pickles.

Summer squash things

Thank ya dear! I didn't roast the slices like the recipe stated, I stuck the slices in a ziplock, salted, shook, ignored them for awhile, then rinsed them.

I told DH the lasagna had to rest for 30 minutes after I took it out of the oven. He ignored me, and carved himself out a serving or two. Since I now have limited freezer space, I'll portion up a couple chunks for the neighbor. It's pretty good, if I do say so myself!

And I used every single snitch of the 3 cut up squash noodle slices, sauce, and cheese mixture! Thankfully I put the 9x13 on a baking sheet as there was some spillage, but it all fit.
