Red face ISO more ideas for "putting by" yellow squash

I need something to do with yellow squash. I have made squash pickles, stewed them and put in the freezer, and just cut some up to freeze and I still have squash. Any ideas?

Miss moorebev...

One of the joys I have always had with gardening was sharing a bountiful harvest with friends, neighbors, and especailly older folks. Some years I have been blessed with so much, I wound up gving away more than I kept for myself. Just an idea!

Enjoy, and Have fun!

How about making some squash soup, moorebev, and freezing the soup to enjoy later. Check out this recipe. Sounds delicious.

SQUASH JELLY

6 c. grated squash
6 c. sugar
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 can (20 oz.) drained pineapple
2 (3 oz.) pkgs. Jello

Add 1 cup water to squash and boil 6 minutes. Add sugar, lemon juice and pineapple and cook 6 minutes more. Add Jello and cook 6 minutes more. Seal in jelly or pint jars.

moorebev, do you need ideas on how to use them fresh, too, or just putting them up?

If you have a food dehydrator you can cut them in little cubes dehydrate them.Use them to throw into soups and stews.

You can also dry them along with onions ,carrots,tomatoes bell peppers etc to make a vegetable mix for soups and stews.Great stuff to have in the winter when your in a pinch.

I have a recipe for squash cake using a box mix. You would never know that squash was an ingredient. Also, I just received a squash casserole recipe that was delicious. It had water chestnuts. If you would like me to post the recipes, I would be happy to.
