"I Forgot to Harvest the Squash" Puree


Author Notes: My neighbor gave me a huge, over-mature yellow summer squash. Not wanting to waste anything, I peeled, seeded, chunked, and steamed it, threw it in the food processor with an excess of butter, some kosher salt, garlic powder, and pepper and instantly regretted all those times that I composted mine.Ellen

Makes: about 4 cups, depending on the size of the squash

Ingredients

  • 1 4-5 pound over-mature yellow summer squash
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Cut the squash into chunks and then peel and seed each one.
