I can't read German, I can understand most of it when spoken due to trying to understand the "secrets" my mother would share with my grandfather while growing up.

Not sure if this was is the same thing or not. We just cooked yellow squash, sauteed on the stove with olive oil and some italian herbs like we usually do. My wife asked what the sour ingredient was that I added. I said it was the same I always add. Then I tried a piece and it was disgusting--gooey and sour. I spit it out, but the taste was still lingering. Since it had a sour taste and a weird, gooey texture on the inside I thought it must have spoiled, though I thought it was odd as they were less than a week old from our local CSA farmers, and they looked fine on the outside and inside when I sliced them. However I do remember while cooking them that some of insides of the slices kind of sunk in and melted away, where I was almost left with a ring of the more firm outer flesh. Very weird. Anyone else notice this before? We were thankful we tried it before our two little kids did, and were dreading some sort of food poisoning, but maybe it was just a squash that didn't grow right?

I hope you contacted your CSA farmer. A friend is a CSA farmer and she would be devastated to hear that one of her veggies was not up to snuff. Also, your CSA farmer might know why (cross-pollination) or maybe all the squash are like that and the CSA farmer will want to go back to the seed company.

+1

Sounds like you got some bad squash, probably not a health hazard, just nasty tasting.

I hope that doesn't happen to me when the mini pumpkins are out for sale. I've baked a whole one and it was wonderful, so I'm planning to do it again.

My post is still alive!

I received an email link to this post today because I was the original poster of this squash story, yet I had forgotten all about it. I saw the title of the link and thought, "I wonder what could happen with yellow squash? Why am I receiving this? I'd better read it because I have some yellow squash to cook this week."

Then I read the post and realized it was a reply to my original!! Thanks for bringing back those horrible memories!! I had forgotten all about that. It really was quite gross.

I remember that the squash looked perfect both inside and outside. There was absolutely NO indication that something could be wrong. Weird.
