(2017) Pickled Fried Butternut Squash

I know – two crazy recipes for butternut squash. Well, why not?

This one came from Sunset magazine, the Western equivalent of Southern Living. It’s based on a northern Italian pickling technique called carpione that’s traditionally used to preserve fish but works with any firm-fleshed seasonal vegetable.

(2017) Butternut Squash Jerky

I saw this recipe for pumpkin jerky in “Scraps, Wilt + Weeds” by Mads Refslud & Tama Matsuoka Wong
and thought what a great idea for butternut! The recipe calls for you to dehydrate a half pumpkin and spend 5 to 7 days doing it. I’m going to try it with butternut halves and expect it won’t take nearly that long.
