Slow-Cooked Yellow Squash


Long cooking in a covered pot concentrates the sweet, nutty flavor of squash. If the vegetable begins to brown as it cooks, lower the heat and add a splash of water.

    This is so sweet and delicious! I have made it many times. It goes with any type of poultry or pork especially well.
