IMG_3754It all started on Saturday, my parents were in town and I took them to the Farmers Market. (My peaches I was hoping to buy were not ready yet.) My parents fell in love with a large beautiful banana squash. So the plans for Sunday dinner began. My sister lives in the next town over so we made plans to meet at her home for a dinner of bbq chicken, new red potatoes, corn on the cob, and “the large beautiful banana squash”. I was put in charge of the squash. I have never cooked squash before.

First Step: Get someone with very strong muscles to cut squash. (They are very think and hard to cut)

Second Step: Place squash in large baking pan and season with salt and pepper to your liking. Also add dabs on butter on top of squash.

Third Step: Add 1/2 inch of water in the bottom of pan. Cover with tin foil.

Forth: Place squash in heated oven of 400° for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

Final Step: Remove squash from oven. Then with a large spoon remove flesh of the squash into a bowl. You may need to apply pressure to squash to release water. Add more salt, pepper, and butter if needed.


This is the magic step. Have brown sugar on the side to be served on top of squash.

Fairly easy, just takes time. Enjoy.

My baby loved it and I did not add brown sugar to her portion.
