Sautéed Summer Squashes (any variety)

Old hat for many of you, but still my go-to method of cooking any and all summer squashed – greatly preferred to steamed.
Slice your squashes fairly thin. For 2 lbs of squash, heat 4 Tbs butter or olive oil (or combo) over medium-high heat in skillet, Add two garlic cloves sliced or chopped and a thinly sliced onion if you like; sauté about 2 minutes. Add squash; sauté until crisp-tender, about 8 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Chopped basil, tarragon, thyme are nice if you have them, also parmesan.
*I find lightly salting and gently squeezing the squashes before cooking makes for better browning 

About stillmansfarm

Stillman's Farm® is a family owned farm in Massachusetts. We currently operate at two locations: a greenhouse/retail business in Lunenburg, and the majority of vegetable production in New Braintree. Glenn Stillman started the business in Lunenburg over 20 years ago and now enjoys the promise of the next generation further expanding the very diverse enterprise. The farm also has several Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs established in Boston, Lunenburg, Jamaica Plain, Brookline, New Braintree and the Southborough/Framingham area. In addition, the Stillman's trucks have become a fixture at the Boston Area Farmer's Markets. Our Philosophy Most of Stillman's produce is grown without chemicals. For a few crops this simply is not feasible. For these particular crops, we participate in the State Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. This entails systematic scouting of fields, protection of beneficial insects, bio-controls, and well-timed applications of only the safest pesticides. With growing concern about genetically modified organisms (GMO), as a patron you can be confident that none of the produce we grow have been engineered, in fact, we often experiment with many heirloom varieties! Conscientiously Grown® The combination of no pesticides, good cultivation management, and IPM practices allows us to offer the widest possible selection of fruit and vegetable varieties and be a thriving sustainable farm. We have developed our own label, "conscientiously grown" to convey our commitment to the safety of our environment, family and customers. All of our hormone free, pasture raised meats carry a conscientiously grown label too!

    Mary and I make a similar saute–diced rather than sliced, slowly cooked way *past* “crisp-tender”–adapted from the redoubtable *Joy of Cooking*, which we call “squash mush.” Sweet and delicious!

    That’s sort of my go-to method also and from there I mix it up. Add an egg or throw it in the blender.
