We often get a lot of questions about the squash we grow. What's a "squash" and what's a zucchini (even though they're all squash) and how on earth do a prepare a Patty Pan squash?
So here's the break down of the squashes we grow....
How fun are these guys! People often ask what's wrong with them since they are half yellow and half green but that's exactly how they're supposed to be! Along with looking cool they have a great flavor that has a mild nutty-ness.
Patty Pan Squash:
Don't let thier round shape throw you off. These guys hold up very nicely on the grill when sliced into "patties." They are also great chopped and cubed. Below I demonstrate how to tackle the situation....
Safari and Goldmine:
These are both gorgeous zucchinis...just like the plain green kind only fancy. Meow!
Oh green zucchini how I love you! When you say zucchini I say Grandma Doris's (not really my grandma but she was an adorable woman who worked on the farm and knew me since day 1) pineapple zucchini bread. It is quite possibly one of my favorite things on earth.
Just like the green stuff...
