Celeste and I were in the kitchen with Big Mama Tyler the other day, and she was prepping and cooking and talking and talking, and inadvertently gave up another recipe!
And here it is: Stewed Summer Squash
I love summer. Along with the long days and warm weather, we also have a variety of fresh vegetables, and one of Big Mama’s favorites (and mine too) is summer squash. According to Big Mama some “folks” call it crooked neck squash.
After you wash the squash, slice them up and chop a big, sweet Vadalia onion. Spray your frying pan with a spray cooking oil of your choice (Big Mama uses bacon grease). Put about a ¼ cup of water in with your squash and simmer on medium heat.
Cover and simmer until the squash and onions are nice and tender. Now here’s the trick … cook until browned and caramelized!
Yummmmmy! And in the words of Big Mama Tyler, “lip smacking good!”
Enjoy … and in the meantime, I’ll try to talk her into giving it up again for more of her secret recipes.
Later y'all !!
