About Me: Summer squash is a general term for 70 different types of fast-growing, tender-skinned, soft-fleshed squash. Zucchini is the most famous, followed by yellow squash (either straight or crookneck), and scallops (or patty pan) which look like flying saucers. We also grow a specialty variety called Ronde De Nice which is a beautiful round heirloom variety with a nutty flavour. Due to its shape it is an excellent candidate for stuffing! Summer squash is awesome thrown on the grill, stuffed with your favourite protein or legume, used raw in a salad. Use any larger, more mealy zucchinis for baking.
To store: Store squash unwashed in a mesh bag, then placed in a paper bag or reused plastic bag kept in the fridge. They will keep for 1-2 weeks.
To freeze: You can freeze pureed, or shredded zucchini in plastic bags, or containers for use in soups or baking.
