Verse of the Day
“Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near.”
Isaiah 55:6 NIV
Thank you to my friend and dental hygienist Connie Miller! Recently I ran into Connie at a local restaurant. She told me she needed a recipe for Squash Pickles. I wasn’t sure I had one but I told her I would look. I went digging through recipes from two of my grandmothers, my recipes AND I asked my mother! We came up with this Squash Pickle recipe although neither mom nor I have ever made it. I passed the recipe on to Connie, but I was curious about it and decided to give it a try. I bought yellow neck squash from a local truck farmer and set out to make my first batch of Squash Pickles. A few days later we gave them a try at lunch. Turns out — they are WONDERFUL. This pickle tastes like Bread and Butter Cucumber pickles but they are crisper than cucumber pickles. I went a little heavy on the onion because mom loves the pickled onion, and I left out the sweet peppers – because I forgot to put them in 🙂 The pickles are bright yellow, sweet and tangy and if you prefer, you can chop all the ingredients and make Squash Relish by using the same recipe. I think I just may take one jar of pickles and chop them up for relish! Even if you don’t make pickles, maybe you will enjoy the pictures! Thanks again Connie!
