Zucchini is a summer squash which has fed people in the Americas for the past 2,000 years!
This book identifies several varieties of summer and winter squash, many of which are interchangeable in the 63 recipes. Zucchini and other summer squashes are delicious in breads and cakes, as well as Chocolate Squash Cookies and Zucchini Brown Betty. Winter squash can be baked into pies, which will compete with the best pumpkin pies, especially with the addition of orange or apple and aromatic spices.
Casseroles combine summer or winter squash with apples or corn, carrots or cheese to make an easy-to-prepare meal or side dish. Try spaghetti Squash for an alternative to pasta, or a delicious squash soup on a cold winter evening. Baked or stir-fried, in fritters or croquettes, zucchini and other squashes add nourishment and taste to any meal.
